Fixed In:

Opened: Mar 29, 2019

Severity: 3-Major


The packet samples transmitted from BIG-IP to an sFlow receiver may contain only 'http' samples, with no 'vlan' or 'interface' FLOW samples appearing. sFlow will continue to transmit CNTR (counter) telemetry packets.


External network-monitoring or management systems, which may depend on sFlow packet samples from BIG-IP systems and from other equipment, are unable properly to characterize the flow of data throughout the network.


When the BIG-IP system is configured with one or more sFlow receivers, with non-zero sampling-rate configured for 'vlan' or 'interface' types.
