Flow selection is the process of selecting a subset of flows from all
observed flows. The Flow Selection Process may be located at an
observation point, or on an IPFIX Mediator. Flow selection reduces
the effort of post-processing flow data and transferring Flow
Records. This document describes motivations for flow selection and
presents flow selection techniques. It provides an information model
for configuring flow selection techniques and discusses what
information about a flow selection process should be exported.
Working Group Summary
This document has been extensively reviewed by the WG, and has
had two WGLCs. I believe that all the issues raised have been
resolved; we now have clear WG consensus.
I'm not aware of any implementations of IPFIX flow selection.
Brian Trammell provided reviews that were particularly useful
to the draft's authors.
