At DE-CIX Frankfurt, the DE-CIX IPFIX Export enables customers to receive IPFIX traffic flow of their physical network access. With the help of IPFIX data, you can get more detailed insights into traffic characteristics.
What is IPFIX Export?
IPFIX is a IP flow information export standard (RFC 7011). The flow information export is randomly sampled (1 out of 10,000 packets) across the entire DE-CIX Frankfurt peering platform. We filter your MAC address to extract only your subset of IPFIX data, i.e. traffic from and to your physical access (all configured VPLS on this port). Both the incoming and outgoing traffic of the selected MAC address is filtered and exported. IP addresses are neither processed nor stored, but exported via an encrypted DTLS data stream.
