ArubaOS8 IPFIX integration with Plixer Scrutinizer

Tested Version:

  • Standalone VMC ArubaOS version
  • 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 

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.
