Net Flow Card Questions

If I have redundant SUP V and my netflow is on the "stand-by" sup, is it possible to issue ip route-cache flow command.  Here is sh ver and sh mod

You should be able to type the command but I don't think it will show any flows as the active sup (the one processing your packets) doesn't have the netflow card. Do a force switchover if you want to use netflow or just purchase a card for the active sup.

Hi Edison,

Firstly, I can not type the command.  I was told by another source that this is because we don't have a netflow card on the redundant (and ACTIVE) sup engine.  Can you verify that this is true?

Additionally, in performing a force switch over, will we drop packets? Does this reload the Sup?  Where is there a good reference of force switch over?  Thanks in advance.....

I don't have the hardware to verify this but I'm pretty sure if the brain of the switch (the active sup) has the feature card, the command should be available.

I highly recommend having the feature card on both Sups, in case the active fails - the NetFlow related commands will be invalid on the redundant Sup.

Additionally, in performing a force switch over, will we drop packets? Does this reload the Sup?  Where is there a good reference of force switch over?  Thanks in advance.....

Please refer to the documentation:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/54sg/configuration/guide/RPR.html#wp1130637

While packets shouldn't be dropped during the switchover, I recommend doing so during a maintenance window

Hi,

I do beleive that the recommended NetFlow software requirements for the 4510R sup V is IOS 12.2(25)SG or later.  Each sup will also need the NetFlow cards for stateful switch over.
