    Configuring Flow Server to Collect Active Flow Monitoring Version 9 Records

    Flow records generated from active flow monitoring version 9 are exported to the flow server. To configure the flow server:

    1. Include the flow-server statement and specify the IPv4 address of the host system at the [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name] hierarchy level. Also include the port statement and specify the UDP port for the flow server.
      [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name]user@host# set family (inet | inet6| mpls) output flow-server address port port-number
    2. Configure the flow server to receive records in version 9 template format.

      To configure the flow server to receive records in version 9 template format, include the version9 statement and specify the template name at the [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name family (inet | inet6| mpls) output flow-server address] hierarchy level.

      [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name family (inet | inet6| mpls) output flow-server address]user@host# set version9 template template-name
    3. Configure the interface connected to the flow server by specifying the source address for generating the monitored packets at the [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name family (inet | inet6| mpls) output] hierarchy level.
      [edit forwarding-options sampling instance instance-name family (inet | inet6| mpls) output]user@host# set interfaces atsx source-address address

    Note:

    • The steps to configure the flow server remain the same irrespective of whether the flow server is connected to the PTX Series router through a cloud network or through any other router.
    • You can configure a maximum of eight flow servers.
