1.  Introduction

   Section 4 of [RFC7012] defines the IPFIX Information Elements (IEs)
   in the range of 1-127 to be compatible with the NetFlow version 9
   fields, as specified in "Cisco Systems NetFlow Services Export
   Version 9" [RFC3954].  As [RFC3954] was published in 2004, it does
   not contain all NetFlow version 9 field types in the range of 1-127.
   The question was asked whether IPFIX Devices should exclusively
   report the IANA IPFIX IEs [IANA-IPFIX].  In other words, when
   upgrading from a NetFlow Metering Process to an IPFIX Metering
   Process, should the IPFIX Devices stop reporting IEs specific to
   NetFlow version 9 that were not registered in IANA [IANA-IPFIX]?




Yourtchenko, et al.           Informational                     [Page 2]


RFC 7270               Cisco Information Elements              June 2014


   This document is intended to fill the gap in this IE range.  It
   describes some additional IPFIX Information Elements in the range of
   1-127, which is the range compatible with field types used by NetFlow
   version 9 in [RFC3954], as specified in the IPFIX Information Model
   [RFC7012].  With this, IPFIX implementations could export all the
   Information Elements specified in IANA [IANA-IPFIX], regardless of
   the range.

   This document follows the rules in "Guidelines for Authors and
   Reviewers of IP Flow Export (IPFIX) Information Elements" [RFC7013].
   This document does not extend [RFC3954].  The IPFIX Protocol
   [RFC7011] has its own Information Model ([RFC7012] and IANA
   [IANA-IPFIX]), which is extensible upon application to IANA, subject
   to expert review by IE-DOCTORS [RFC7013].  This document extends the
   IPFIX Information Model.

2.  Terminology

   IPFIX-specific terminology used in this document is defined in
   Section 2 of [RFC7011].  As in [RFC7011], these IPFIX-specific terms
   have the first letter of a word capitalized when used in this
   document.

3.  Information Elements Overview

   The following Information Elements are discussed in the sections
   below:

     +----+-----------------------+-----+---------------------------+
     | ID | Name                  |  ID | Name                      |

     | 34 | samplingInterval      |  84 | samplerName               |
     | 35 | samplingAlgorithm     |  87 | flagsAndSamplerId         |
     | 38 | engineType            |  89 | forwardingStatus          |
     | 39 | engineId              |  92 | srcTrafficIndex           |
     | 43 | ipv4RouterSc          |  93 | dstTrafficIndex           |
     | 48 | samplerId             | 100 | className                 |
     | 49 | samplerMode           | 102 | layer2packetSectionOffset |
     | 50 | samplerRandomInterval | 103 | layer2packetSectionSize   |
     | 51 | classId               | 104 | layer2packetSectionData   |

4.  Information Elements

4.1.  samplingInterval

   Description:
      Deprecated in favor of 305 samplingPacketInterval.  When using
      sampled NetFlow, the rate at which packets are sampled -- e.g., a
      value of 100 indicates that one of every 100 packets is sampled.

   ElementId:  34

   Semantics:  quantity

   Status:  deprecated

   Units:  packets

         2 - Random Sampling.

      The values are not compatible with the selectorAlgorithm IE, where
      "Deterministic" has been replaced by "Systematic count-based" (1)
      or "Systematic time-based" (2), and "Random" is (3).  Conversion
      is required; see "Packet Sampling (PSAMP) Parameters"
      [IANA-PSAMP].

   Performance metrics will need a consolidation in the industry, based

   or their status will be deprecated.

5.2.  Application Information IEs

   ElementId: 101

   Please refer to [RFC6759].

5.3.  IEs Assigned for NetFlow v9 Compatibility

   ElementId: 105..127

   These element IDs are not covered by this document and are left "as
   is", i.e., for NetFlow v9 compatibility.
