Hi, I have created certain VLANs on MSFC. I FAIL to capture those VLANs traffic (after generating, it shows very very little network traffic, e.g. 3k-4k, that's impossible) from MRTG. But it worked for my older 5500 with RSM VLANs while using similar MRTG generation procedures. What's wrong with my 6513 MSFC? Attached is the 6513 MSFC IOS version for your reference.

IOS (tm) MSFC2 Software (C6MSFC2-DSV-M), Version 12.1(11b)E3, EARLY DEPLOYMENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
The reason is that Cat6K uses MLS. Cat6000 MLS documentation does state and explain how packets are switched through hardware (PFC) which means only the first packet in the flow will hit the MSFC (by default) so subsequent packets for the same flow will not hit the MSFC, in turn causing the counters on the VLAN interface to be inaccurate for the amount of traffic actually passing through the switch from say one VLAN to another.
The best way to solve this is to get a NAM (Network Analysis Module) for your Cat6K or an RMON probe. Then you can get your VLAN stats via RMON.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
