Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Intelligent Traffic Analysis

Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Intelligent Traffic Analysis

Involved Network Elements

FabricInsight is required.

License Requirements

Intelligent traffic analysis is a basic feature of CE8800 and CE6800 series switches and is not under license control.

Version Requirements

Table 19-3 Products and minimum version supporting intelligent traffic analysis


Minimum Version Required











Feature Limitations

  • Currently, intelligent traffic analysis can be used to analyze only IPv4 TCP packets (including inner IPv4 TCP packets encapsulated in IPv4 VXLAN packets).
  • If intelligent traffic analysis and NetStream are enabled in the same view, NetStream takes effect preferentially.
  • If intelligent traffic analysis and sFLow are enabled in the same view on the CE6865EI, CE8850-64CQ-EI, CE8861EI, or CE8868EI, intelligent traffic analysis takes effect preferentially.
  • Intelligent traffic analysis cannot be enabled on a network where per-packet load balancing (for example, flowlet or DLB-based forwarding) is enabled.
  • When all the following features are configured simultaneously, ACL resources are allocated for the features in the following order:

    Traffic mirroring < intelligent traffic analysis < MQC (traffic policing, traffic statistics collection, and packet filtering) < intelligent operation, administration and maintenance (IOAM) < discarded packet capture

  • Intelligent traffic analysis may fail to be configured if mirroring or ACL resources are insufficient.
  • Currently, intelligent traffic analysis can be used to analyze packets of a TCP flow that pass through the same switch in both directions along the round-trip path. On a network with stack, M-LAG, or SVF deployed, this feature does not work if the TCP flow passes through different switches.
  • Intelligent traffic analysis cannot be used to analyze a specified flow (unidirectional or bidirectional) that passes through the same switch multiple times.
  • A management network interface cannot export flow analysis results.
  • The exported packets carrying flow analysis results can be forwarded only in common Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes. These packets cannot be forwarded through VXLAN or MPLS tunnels. Additionally, the destination address of the exported packets cannot be the IP address of a VBDIF interface.
