A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Packet Sampling Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Packet Sampling (PSAMP) Protocol Specifications
Author(s) : B. Claise
Filename : draft-ietf-psamp-protocol-00.txt
Pages : 13
Date : 2003-10-20
This document specifies the export of packet information from a
PSAMP exporting process to a PSAMP colleting process. For export of
packet information the IP Flow Information eXport (IPFIX) protocol
is used. It is shown that The IPFIX protocol is well suited for this
purpose, because the IPFIX architecture matches the PSAMP
architecture very well and the means provided by the IPFIX protocol
are sufficient. The document specifies in detail how the IPFIX
protocol is used for PSAMP export of packet information.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
