Technical Summary

    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.

Document Quality

    I'm not aware of any implementations of IPFIX flow selection.
    Brian Trammell provided reviews that were particularly useful
    to the draft's authors.
