NETFLOW-MIB

The Netflow MIB provides a simple and easy method
        to get NetFlow cache information, current NetFlow
        configuration and statistics. It will enable medium to
        small size enterprises to take advantage of NetFlow
        technology over SNMP at a reduced infrastructure cost.
        The MIB is created to provide Netflow information in
        these areas:
        
               1. Cache information and configuration.
               2. Collector information and configuration.
               3. Export Statistics.
               4. Version 9 Export Template information.
        
        Terminology used
        
        Flow
        A flow is defined as a unidirectional sequence of 
        		 packets with some common properties that pass 
        		 through a network device.  These collected flows 
        		 are exported to an external device, the NetFlow
        		 collector.  Network flows are highly granular;
        for example, flow records include details such 
        		 as IP addresses, packet and byte counts,timestamps, 
        		 Type of Service (ToS), application ports, 
        		 input and output interfaces, etc.
        
        Exporter
        A device (for example, a router) with NetFlow
        services enabled. The exporter monitors packets
        entering an observation point and creates flows out
        of these packets. The information from these flows
        are exported in the form of Flow Records to
        the collector.
        
        Flow Record
        A Flow Record provides information about an IP Flow
        that exists on the Exporter. The Flow Records are
        commonly referred to as NetFlow Services data or
        NetFlow data.
        
        Collector
        The NetFlow Collector receives Flow Records from
        one or more Exporters. It processes the received
        export packet, i.e. parses, stores, display the 
        		 Flow Record information. The flow records may be optionally
        aggregated before being stored into the hard disk.
                             
        Template
        NetFlow Version 9 Export format is template based.
        Version 9 record format consists of a packet header
        followed by at least one or more template or data
        FlowSets. A template FlowSet (collection of one or more
        template) provides a description of the fields that
        will be present in future data FlowSets. Templates
        provide an extensible design to the record format,
        a feature that should allow future enhancements to
        NetFlow services without requiring concurrent changes
        to the basic flow-record format.
        
        One additional record type is also a part of
        Version 9 specification: an options template. Rather
        than supplying information about IP flows, options are
        used to supply information about the NetFlow process
        configuration or NetFlow process specific data.
