Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 18.3R1 on MX Series routers.


Set the amount of IPFIX data received by the input plug-in from the downstream devices that can be buffered before the flush timer expires. If the buffer fills with queued records before the timer expires, then the plug-in stops processing IPFIX records. When the flush timer expires, the queued records are released from the buffer and sent to the IPFIX collector.

Use this statement together with the flush-timer statement to prevent the IPFIX mediation agent from dropping packets when the input plug-in receives IPFIX records from the downstream devices faster than the IPFIX mediation agent can process and send them upstream to the IPFIX collector.


bytesNumber of bytes from the input plug-in that can be buffered.
