Configuring NTF Agent

 

To configure a Network Telemetry Framework (NTF) agent instance to send telemetry data to a single endpoint:

  1. Create a service agent instance.
  2. Configure parameters for the service agent input plug-in. The input plug-in options include analytics, input-ipfix, and input-jti-ipfix. See the inputs configuration statement for a description of the syntax.Note

    When you modify the input plug-in configuration of a service agent instance, the associated service agent daemon is restarted.

  3. Configure parameters for the service agent output plug-in. Parameters are based on the key/value pair requirements of the output plug-in. For each service agent instance, you can configure only one endpoint to which to export data. The output plug-in options include ouput-ipfix, kafka, and file. See the outputs configuration statement for a description of the syntax.Note

    When you modify the output plug-in configuration of a service agent instance, the associated service agent daemon is restarted.

  4. (Optional) For each service agent instance, you can configure more than one input plug-in to push data to the output plug-in. To illustrate, the basic format of the configuration looks like:
  5. (Optional) Delete a service agent instance.

To configure tracing operations for NTF agent:

  1. Specify the name of the file to receive the output of the tracing operation. The file is stored in the /var/log/ directory of your device.
  2. Specify the severity level for messages to be logged.

SHOW COMMANDS and LOG FILES

  1. Display the running service agent instances of the NTF agent.
  2. Additionally, view information about service agent instances, such as whether the input and output plug-ins have been initialized, in the service agent log file: /var/log/agent-name.log.
