    Requesting Full support of Viptela devices in NFA for multiple customers.

     

    Viptela devices send Netflow data differently then most other Cisco devices which causes NFA to mishandle the data out of the box.  Patch NFA_9.3.8_PTF_012 was issue to correct an issue where too much data was seen in NFA on Viptela devices.

     

    However, there are still some issues where you may see slightly less data on some interfaces.  We believe this is only occurs when there is an interface in the netflow data with an ifindex of 4294967295.  

     

    According to Viptela, this high ifindex of 4294967295, represent data sent to or from the CPU of the Vitpela devices, and represents internal system traffic.  

     

    This idea is to request full support for Viptela devices so that data processes correctly in NFA.
