Usage Guidelines

In addition to enabling IPFIX support of the port, use this command to check that the port being enabled has hardware support for IPFIX.

If the port does not support IPFIX, an error message similar to the following is displayed:

Error: IPFIX is not supported by hardware on port <slot>:<port>

The port specified must be either a physical port that is not part of a trunk LAG, or it must be the LAG master port. When it is neither of these, the following message is displayed:

Error: Master port 3:1 is enabled for IPFIX but Member port 5:2 is not capable.

When the specified port is the LAG master port, all ports in that LAG must support the IPFIX feature in hardware. If one or more ports in the LAG do not support IPFIX, the following error message is displayed:

Error: IPFIX is not supported on port 5:1.


The following command enables IPFIX metering of IPv6 traffic on port 2:1:

enable ip-fix ipv6 ports 2:1


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.5.
