  • 1.  ArubaOS8 IPFIX integration with Plixer Scrutinizer

    Posted Nov 04, 2019 09:41 PM

    Tested Version:

    • Standalone VMC ArubaOS version 8.5.0.3
    • Scrutinizer_VA_18.16

    These two devices are installed in VMWare ESXI within the same subnet. I have one AP and one client connected to my controller to generate client traffic.

     

    1. Install Scrutinizer as shown in this guide https://docs.plixer.com/projects/scrutinizer/en/latest/deployment_guide/scrutinizer_deployment_guide.html 

    then configure system ip address, DNS, NTP, etc.

     

    2. I have working setup for VMC controller with one AP and one client connected. Configure IPFIX: Configuration>Services>External Services>IPFIX.

    Change the settings here to 1 minute for testing to get the data quickly.

     

    You can verify collector configuration
