NetFlow on Catalyst 4500-E Series

Anyone know if a Supervisor 6-E will support NetFlow on a Catalyst 4507R-E?

If not, what are my options for NetFlow on a 4507R-E?

From : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/53SG/configuration/nfswitch.html

...Supervisor Engine 6-E and Catalyst 4900M chassis does not support Netflow.

...To use the NetFlow feature, you must have the Supervisor Engine V-10GE (the functionality is embedded in the supervisor engine), or the NetFlow Services Card (WS-F4531) and either a Supervisor Engine IV or a Supervisor Engine V.

That's what I was afraid of.

I'm guessing my only options to have both 10 Gbps link capabilities AND NetFlow are to move to the Catalyst 6500 series then.

Re: NetFlow on Catalyst 4500-E Series

you dont have to move to 10GB sup engine to support netflow. As suggest you can buy daughter card netflow expasion module WS-F4531 for your Supervisor Engine 6-E instead. this option is cheaper.

Re: NetFlow on Catalyst 4500-E Series

I was under the impression that the WS-F4531 only was able to be used with either the Sup-IV or else the Sup-V engines?

My ultimate goal would be to support 10 Gbps flows with a 4500-E series chassis while also having NetFlow. However, it's seeming that it's not possible and that they are mutually exclusive on the 4500-E series chassis.

Re: NetFlow on Catalyst 4500-E Series

sorry yes you are right! While i was writing my suggestion it skipped my mind you are not using Sup-IV/ Sup-V engines

Hi,

Cisc SUP 7-E supports Flexible NetFlow export. Can you try configuring as below and check. Remember to use IP Address as per your network.

flow exporter NFAexporter

    destination 192.168.1.1

    output-features

    transport udp 9996

flow record NFArecord

    match ipv4 source address

    match ipv4 destination address

    match transport source-port

    match transport destination-port

    match interface input

    match ipv4 protocol

    match ipv4 tos

    match ipv4 dscp

    collect routing source as

    collect routing destination as

    collect routing next-hop address ipv4

    collect transport tcp flags

    collect counter bytes

    collect counter packets

    collect timestamp sys-uptime first

    collect timestamp sys-uptime last

    collect interface output

    collect flow direction

    collect ipv4 id

    collect ipv4 source mask

    collect ipv4 destination mask

flow monitor NFAmonitor

    record NFArecord

    exporter NFAexporter

    cache timeout active 1

    cache timeout inactive 15

Associate the monitor to the interfaces - Apply on all interfaces of the switch

interface GigabitEthernet 0/1

     ip flow monitor NFAmonitor layer2-switched input   - Will capture both switched and bridged traffic
