NetStream Flow Statistics Exporting

NetStream Flow Statistics Exporting

The NDE exports flow statistics to a specified NSC for further analysis after the flows age in the NetStream cache.

Flow Statistics Exporting Modes

Original flow statistics exporting

The NDE collects statistics about all flows in original flow statistics exporting mode, and will export statistics about each flow to the NetStream server after the aging timer expires.

This mode enables the NetStream server to obtain detailed statistics about each flow, but increases network bandwidth and CPU usage. The statistics also occupy more memory on the NDE, which increases cost.

Aggregation flow statistics exporting

When in aggregation mode, the NDE aggregates flow statistics with the same aggregation entry values and then exports them to a specified NetStream server, significantly saving network bandwidth. The NDE supports the aggregation modes described in Table 12-2.

For example, when there are four original TCP flows that have the same source port number, destination port number, and destination IP address, but different source IP addresses, the protocol-port mode is used. Aggregation entries in this mode include:
  • Protocol number
  • Source port number
  • Destination port number
Because the four TCP flows from the example have the same protocol number, source port number, and destination port number, only one aggregation flow statistics record is recorded in the aggregation flow statistics table.

Source AS number, destination AS number, source mask length, destination mask length, source prefix, destination prefix, ToS, inbound interface index, and outbound interface index

Flexible flow statistics exporting

Flexible flows are created based on customized configurations. Users can collect flow statistics as required based on the:
  • Protocol type
  • DSCP field
  • Source IP address
  • Destination IP address
  • Source port number
  • Destination port number
  • Flow label
The NDE exports the flow statistics to the NetStream server. Flexible flow statistics exporting occupies less traffic than original flow statistics exporting and provides users with a flexible way to collect NetStream statistics.

Versions of Exported Packets

The current versions of NetStream exported packets are V5, V8, V9 and V10. NetStream exported packets of all the versions are transmitted using UDP.
  • V5: The packet format is fixed. NetStream packets in this format contain the original flow statistics collected based on 7-tuple information.
  • V8: The packet format is fixed. NetStream packets in this version support the aggregation exporting format.
  • V9: The NetStream packet format is defined in profiles. Statistical items can be combined, and therefore statistics are exported more flexibly. V9 supports the exporting of BGP next hop information and MPLSstatistics.
  • V10: The NetStream packet format is defined in profiles. Statistics are exported according to traffic characteristics. Statistics are highly scalable: the statistics formats vary according to requirements.
    NOTE:

    The exported V10 of NetStream can be used only with some non-Huawei devices.
