It's been a very long time since I touched netflow, but I recently
netflow not recording correct origin-as
installed FlowViewer since I wanted to grab some stats (we collect
netflow data, but don't do much with it) since we are transit
shopping. Thought it would be interesting to see, for example how
much traffic ends up somewhere like cogent to see if it's worth
throwing them in the mix.
After digging up from FlowViewer to "sh ip cache verbose flow", I'm
starting to think either I totally misunderstood how this works or
there's something wonky with IOS. We have our own AS and we have
transit to HE.net and Level3. If I run any report in flow-tools or
flowviewer that shows source/destination AS counts, it shows about
99% of my traffic with a source or destination AS of 3356. This is
obviously not true - traffic graphs show that we run about 2/3
inbound from HE. When I look at the src/dst AS in "sh ip cache
verbose flow", I see the same thing. Here's a single line showing
what I believe is incorrect AS info:
SrcIf SrcIPaddress DstIf DstIPaddress Pr TOS Flgs Pkts
Port Msk AS Port Msk AS NextHop B/Pk Active
Fa2/0 184.108.40.206 AT3/0.2535 216.220.114.xxx 06 00 02 2
E055 /0 3356 2D3D /32 0 216.220.114.xxx 52 2.9
That's a flow from 220.127.116.11 which is AS 5089 to one of our
customers. Fa2/0 is HE.net. So not only is this flow not sourced
from AS3356, it's not even coming in via our transit link to 3356.
This seems totally wrong.
I'm on a 7206 w/an NPE-G2. IOS 12.4(24)T6.
Both transit links have "ip flow ingress" and "ip flow egress". I
also started with just ingress on those interfaces as well as an ATM
OC-3 interface and another GigE port, but the ATM interface did not
seem to be grabbing flows from the subinterfaces. My AS problem is
the same with either configuration.
My export config is this:
ip flow-export source Loopback0
ip flow-export version 5 origin-as
ip flow-export destination 18.104.22.168 9800
Am I doing something obviously wrong here?
