IP Accounting for count traffic for end to end communication on Aruba CX 6300

  • 1.  IP Accounting for count traffic for end to end communication on Aruba CX 6300

    Posted Jul 01, 2022 04:22 AM
    Hello Guys,

    I want to migrate from L3 Switch to Aruba CX 6300. There is IP Accounting command in vlan interface.
    The implementation as follows:

    interface Vlan6
    description Lantai 2
    ip address 10.145.54.1 255.255.255.128
    ip access-group Bill_Payment in
    ip helper-address 10.145.60.201
    ip helper-address 10.194.22.197
    ip accounting output-packets

    based on docummentation :

    Cisco IP accounting support provides basic IP accounting functions. By enabling IP accounting, users can see the number of bytes and packets switched through the software on a source and destination IP address basis. Only transit IP traffic is measured and only on an outbound basis; traffic generated by the software or terminating in the software is not included in the accounting statistics. To maintain accurate accounting totals, the software maintains two accounting databases: an active and a checkpointed database.

    my question is, is Aruba CX 6300 can support this feature or maybe there is work around for this feature?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Luthfi

    AOS-CX devices does not support this feature. We do have only Client IP Tracker feature, that can track the IPs of end devices. For more information refer -

    Hi Luthfi,

    Workaround for now is using sFlow and a sFlow Collector to see L3/L4 statistics per port. To have your request in future release of AOS-CX you could enter a feature request in https://innovate.arubanetworks.com/
