Non IP packets|
PSAMP supports non-IP packets
“Flexibility: to support selection of packets using different network protocols or encapsulation layers (e.g. IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, etc)”
Content independent sampling easy: packet type irrelevant
“Mask/match operations SHOULD be available for different protocol portions of the packet header: […] (iii) encapsulation headers (including MPLS label stack, ATOM, if present)
Reporting: MAY include fields relevant to transport protocols, MPLS, ATOM
Need to align conformance?
Will IPFIX support this?
