ip flow top-talkers * indication

Hi Friends - I am trying to findout what astreik (*) indicates in the command "show ip flow top-talkers".

I read in the command reference that The asterisk (*) immediately following the "DstIf" field indicates that the flow being shown is an egress flow.

But i see the same 2 flows (having the same source, destination, destination interface), one showing with * and other donot. Can you please explain the why it please

rtr1#show ip flow top-talkers

SrcIf         SrcIPaddress    DstIf         DstIPaddress    Pr SrcP DstP Bytes
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777*  172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA96   317K
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777   172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA65   310K
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777   172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA69   219K
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777*  172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA69   180K
10 of 10 top talkers shown. 1293 flows processed.

Thanks in advance

ip flow top-talkers * indication

The * means that it's an egress flow:

DstIf

Interface from which the packet was transmitted.

Note: If an asterisk (*) immediately follows the DstIf field, the flow being shown is an egress flow.

ip flow top-talkers * indication

Hi John Thank you for the response.

Though i can understand that * means egress flow, where i got confused is, why the first line of the below output having *, whereas the next line doesn't have, thougt the traffic pattern is same .

rtr1#show ip flow top-talkers

SrcIf         SrcIPaddress    DstIf         DstIPaddress    Pr SrcP DstP Bytes
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777*  172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA96   317K
Po1.2         10.212.16.45    Se0/3/0.777   172.22.49.41    06 2F30 FA65   310K

It could be because the etherchannel is the source and it could possibly coming over a different link in the channel group, but it's still in the egress direction, so I'm not sure why you wouldn't have the * listed.

Hi,

I am assuming that you config is like this

!

int Po1.2

ip flow ingress

!

int Se0/3/0.777

ip flow egress

!

Now the same flow is going to be captured by both of these interfaces. One with the * is the flow that is captured by the ip flow egress command on the Serial link.

Hope that answers your question.

Hi John & Vishesh - Thank you for your expert response

Here is the configuration i have taken from the same router

interface Serial0/3/0.777 point-to-point
ip flow ingress
ip flow egress
end

interface Port-channel1.2
ip flow ingress
end

regads,
