Current RFCs

  • RFC 7119: Operation of the IPFIX Protocol on IPFIX Mediators (February 2014). The RFC defines how the IPFIX protocol works on mediators (devices which sit in-band on an IPFIX stream and modify it, e.g. mPlane components for filtering, aggregating, and federating streams of indirectly exported data using the IPFIX protocol).
  • RFC 7125: Revision of the tcpControlBits IPFIX Information Element (February 2014). The RFC defines an (already implemented in QoF and python-ipfix) enhancement to the export of TCP flags bits in IPFIX, allowing it to be used for the measurement of ECN.
  • RFC 7373: Textual Representation of IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) Abstract Data Types (September 2014). The RFC defines textual representations for IPFIX primitive types to be compatible with the JSON representations used for equivalent primitives in mPlane.
