RFC 5477                PSAMP Information Model               March 2009

Abstract

   This memo defines an information model for the Packet SAMPling
   (PSAMP) protocol.  It is used by the PSAMP protocol for encoding
   sampled packet data and information related to the Sampling process.
   As the PSAMP protocol is based on the IP Flow Information eXport
   (IPFIX) protocol, this information model is an extension to the IPFIX
   information model.
