Great Matrix.

Just a comment: the Catalyst 3760-X should be a 3750-X.

Awesome document... been in dire need of something like that for a while!

2960-X/XR supports Ingress/Egress direction?

In the configuration guide, I saw the following description.

"Monitor attachment is only supported in the ingress direction"

Beginner

Hi Genius,

 

netflow feature is supported in XRv9000?

Cisco Employee
Great reference but can you please reformat the layout as its pretty much unreadable now in the new community portal.
Beginner

Hi Dears,

 Anyone can confirm Netflow will be supported in XRV9000.

Can someone update this list with the latest Nexus 9300s?

The 9336C-FX2 is not documented here and it has different capabilities than the N 9200 9300 9500 listed in the document.

Beginner
Anyway you can share this in a .pdf format? Thanks in advance for this great document.
Beginner

I cant see the other columns !

Cisco Employee

Good document, is sampled flow supported on Nexus 5548 ?!
