Syntax

Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

Support at the [edit forwarding-options analyzer analyzer-name input] hierarchy level for MX Series routers introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1.

Description

Set the ratio of the number of packets to be sampled. For example, if you specify a rate of 10, every tenth packet (1 packet out of 10) is sampled.

Native analyzer sessions (that is, the [edit forwarding-options analyzer analyzer-name input] hierarchy level for MX Series routers) can be configured without specifying input parameters, which means that the instance uses default input values: rate = 1 and maximum-packet-length = 0.

Note

The recommended sampling rate for the MX150 is 1000 or greater. If you configure less than 1000, a warning is issued.

Options

number—Denominator of the ratio.

Range: 1 through 16000000 (16M)

For QFX Series switches, the maximum sampling rate for inline Junos Traffic Vision (J-flow) is 65535.

Required Privilege Level

interface—To view this statement in the configuration.

interface-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
