Atfer JUNOS Upgrade Netflow not working

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

after upgrading our MX480 from 10.0R3 to 10.4R6 our NetFlow configuration stopped working. Originally, this was configured:

 

> show configuration forwarding-options
sampling {
    input {
        family inet {
            rate 1000;
            run-length 0;
            max-packets-per-second 10000;
        }
    }
    output { ## Warning: 'output' is deprecated
        flow-server x.x.x.x {
            port 9702;
            autonomous-system-type origin;
            no-local-dump;
            source-address y.y.y.y;
            version 5;
        }
    }
}

 

 

Unfortunately, the documentation seems to be real outdated, I couldn't find any entry that the "ouput" command is deprectaed. Then I reconfigured the flow sampling with the following config:

 

# show forwarding-options sampling
input {
    rate 1000;
    run-length 0;
    max-packets-per-second 10000;
}
family inet {
    output {
        flow-server x.x.x.x {
            port 9702;
            autonomous-system-type origin;
            no-local-dump;
            source-address y.y.y.y;
            version 5;
        }
    }
}

 

 

But it still doesn't work, the traceoptions show that the router doesn't send out anything. Do you have any input for me how I can get this to work again?

 

Thank you!

Hello,

Your destination UDP port is not the same (9703 vs 9702).

Perhaps you have a FW filter blocking UDP dst.port 9702 outbound from the router?

Hi Alex, sorry, this was a fault, the destination port was 9702 in the old config and it is in the new config too. This is not the issue. Regards, Daniel

Have seen the same (loss of sampling from some/all cards) on an ISSU upgrade from 10.0 to 10.4

Is it on DPC/DPCE? Have you tried reloading the DPC/DPCE or chassis?

Yes, we have two DPCE-R-4XGE-XFP inside the chassis. No, we did not reboot it because this means that our customers have a loss of service.

Did you just reboot it and then it worked again?

Have you tried 'restart sampling' command or deactivating and activating again the flow stanza?

Yes, we executed restart sampling, but this did not help. What do you mean with "deactivating and activating again the flow stanza"?

I mean you should type deactivate forwarding-options sampling, commit, activate forwarding-options sampling and commit once again. But I guess it's the same thing as restarting the daemon.

We tried this already a few times, but this did not help too.
