We are running MPC3/4E and MS-MPC, Junos 14.1R5.5 production and 15.1F6.9 in
our lab, where we sample inet, inet6 and mpls with
Unfortunately I don't believe what you seek to do is possible, but I cannot
I can point you to documentation which refers only to families inet, inet6 and
mpls for sampling.
# Junos 15.1F6.9
@mx1.cbg.uk.re0# set forwarding-options sampling family ?
> inet Sample IPv4 packets
> inet6 Sample IPv6 packets
> mpls Sample mpls packets
@mx1.cbg.uk.re0# set firewall family bridge filter foo term bar then ?
<sample not listed>
# Interestingly VPLS sampling is possible since Junos 13.2, but I'm not sure of
the full limitations, but fundamentally it appears
possible only for IPFIX.
@mx1.cbg.uk.re0 # set firewall family vpls filter foo term bar then sample ?
<[Enter]> Execute this command
Must you sample for analysis, or simply gather traffic volume statistics
per-VLAN and on aggregate?
If the latter, SNMP is your best bet.
