Hi Wilfrid,

Thanks for getting in touch. A couple of notes:

1) if you are sending vpnv4 routes - and if that is a requirement - then you will need a flow_to_rd_map to map flows to the right VPN (maybe basing on the input interface at the ingress router? just an idea);

2) Confederations always do add up to the fun :-) I may not have the complete info at the moment in order to comment further on this;

3) bgp_ip in the bgp_agent_map may have been set incorrectly; in the comment you say "where w.x.y.z is the IP address of the nfacctd collector" but, according to docs, it should be set to the "IPv4/IPv6 session address or Router ID of the BGP peer.".

You may start working on #1 and #3. Probably more info is needed for #2 and for this reason I suggest that, if things do not just work out at this round, we move the conversation to unicast email.

Good afternoon

I cannot have my netflow augmented with bgp data (src_as, dst_as, peer_dst_ip…) all of the BGP data stay 0 or are empty

An output of the csv file is:


Where 0,0 are the missing src_as, dst_as  and , , is the missing peer_dst_ip

I try to monitor traffic of a L3VPN by having all routers sending netflow to nfacctd and augment them with BGP data.

The nfacctd collector peers with the route-reflector on address-family vpnv4.

_Please mind the network is a confederation network with sub-as_


I cannot figure out what is wrong


BGP session is up,

bgp_table_dump_file collects properly all routes from the vrf

netflow is properly collected by nfacctd

But all aggregate values that should augment the data stay at zero for the AS, or empty like peer_dst_ip

My bgp_agent_map file has the below entry

bgp_ip=w.x.y.z.   ip=     where w.x.y.z is the IP address of the nfacctd collector

my nfacctd config file is:

daemonize: false

Thank you in advance
