As far as I can see, this document proposed a new aggregation parameter for IPFIX. So that the operators can get the traffic statistic from a new dimension. Because "Flow information based on IP address or IP prefix may provide much too fine granularity for a large network. On the contrary, flow information based on AS number may be too coarse." It sounds reasonable. Tianran > -----Original Message----- > From: Joel M.
