Configuring the Interface Index Length in Layer 2 NetStream Flows

Configuring the Interface Index Length in Layer 2 NetStream Flows


The interface index length configured on the NDE must be the same as that configured on the NSC. Otherwise, the NSC cannot resolve the NetStream packets sent from the NDE.

The NMS obtains the interface information of exported packets according to the interface indexes in NetStream packets. Interface index formats include 16-bit and 32-bit. The NMS devices of different vendors may use different interface index formats. The interface index format used by the NDE must be the same as the interface index format used by the NMS. For example, if the NMS can parse 32-bit interface indexes, set the format of the interface indexes contained in exported NetStream packets to 32-bit.


  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
  2. Run the netstream export ethernet index-switch index-switch command to set the number of digits in the interface index contained in an exported packet carrying Layer 2 NetStream statistics.

    By default, 16-bit interface indexes are contained in the exported packets carrying Layer 2 NetStream flow statistics.

  3. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
