We are trying to configure IPFIX on our campus switch (CCS 720XP) running EOS 4.25.1F and want to utilize the IPFIX Hardware Export capability to send flows for tracking to CloudVision Portal running version CVP2020.2.3 but we are not able to have any active flows being formed to be exported. We tried running with flow tracking sampled (for IPFIX) and we got see the active flows populated by looking at show flow tracking sampled flow-table command but no display on CVP – Traffic Flows tab. Am I missing something?


Below is the configuration (for Hardware-based export) for what we expect:

flow tracking hardware
tracker ftr1
record export on interval 3000
exporter exp1
collector <cvp-ip-address>
local interface loopback0
template interval 5000
record format ipfix standard timestamps counters
no shutdown

int Ethernet1
flow tracker hardware ftr1
no shutdown

720XP-IDF#show flow tracking hardware
Flow Tracking Status
Type: Hardware
Running: yes

Export format: IPFIX version 10, MTU 9152

Hi Michael,

The collector IP has to be, as TerminAttr on EOS is doing the collector part, which then streams the data to ingest on CVP.

Thanks, Tamas. We made the recommended changes in our configuration to include as our collector. IP-Routing was enabled however, we are still unable to see IPFIX flows exported to our CloudVision. Note when we try with sFlow, the flows appear in CloudVision.

Please let me know if you need additional [show] output or if there is any recommended debugging required for us to determine what the issue could be.
