Passive Flow Monitoring System Requirements for T Series, M Series and MX Series Routers

 

To perform passive flow monitoring, your router must meet these minimum requirements:

  • Junos OS Release 20.4R1 or later for passive flow monitoring support on the MX10008 router with the JNP10K-2101 line card and on the MX240/MX480/MX960/MX2008/MX2010/MX2020 routers with either the MPC7E-MRATE or MPC7E-10G line card

  • Junos OS Release 9.2 or later for passive flow monitoring support for IQ2 interfaces only on M120, M320, T320, T640, T1600 and MX Series routers

  • Junos OS Release 8.5 or later for passive flow monitoring support on the MX Series MultiServices routers

  • Junos OS Release 8.4 or later for passive flow monitoring support on the MultiServices 400 PIC (Type 2)

  • Junos OS Release 7.6 or later to clear error and flow statistics with the clear passive-monitoring statistics command

  • Junos OS Release 7.5 or later for support of the dynamic flow capture (DFC) Management Information Base (MIB)

  • Junos OS Release 7.4 or later for dynamic flow capture on Monitoring Services III PICs installed in T Series and M320 routers, and port mirroring of IPv6 packets

  • Junos OS Release 7.3 or later for passive flow monitoring on selected Ethernet-based interfaces and filter-based forwarding on output interfaces

  • Junos OS Release 7.1 or later for passive flow monitoring and flow collection services on Monitoring Services II PICs installed in T Series and M320 routers

  • Junos OS Release 6.4 or later for support of the next-hop IP address field in flow monitoring version 5 records

  • Junos OS Release 6.2 or later for ATM2 intelligent queuing (IQ) interface passive monitoring, flow collection services, and MPLS label stripping

  • Junos OS Release 6.1 or later for MPLS passive monitoring

  • Junos OS Release 6.0 or later for the Monitoring Services II PIC

  • Junos OS Release 5.7 or later for the automatic insertion of autonomous system (AS) numbers and SNMP index values for interfaces into flow records

  • Junos OS Release 5.4 or later for the Monitoring Services PIC

  • M40e, M160, M320, MX Series, or T Series router with an Internet Processor II ASIC or later

  • Type 1 enhanced FPCs

  • Two optical splitters

  • A Tunnel Services PIC (required if you wish to send traffic to more than one analyzer)

  • An input interface from the following list:

    • SONET/SDH PIC—OC3, OC12, or OC48

    • ATM2 IQ PIC—OC3 or OC12

    • 4-port Fast Ethernet PIC

    • Gigabit Ethernet PIC—4-port with small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) or 10-port with SFP

    • 1-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet PIC with XENPAK

  • Outgoing PICs to connect to the flow collector or packet analyzer

  • Flow monitoring version 5 collector

  • ES PIC and packet analyzers (optional)
