Possible to collect Management Port (fa1) on Cat4500-X ?

Dear all,

I have already verified the following output however actually is it normally impossible to collect with management port

on Cat4500-X?

 

##### Management Port #####

Cat4500-X(config)#int fa1
Cat4500-X(config-if)#ip flow monitor MONITOR input
% Flow Monitor: Flow Monitor 'MONITOR' : Flow Monitor not supported on interface FastEthernet1.

 

Cat4500-X(config-if)#ip flow monitor MONITOR layer2-switched input
% Flow Monitor: Flow Monitor 'MONITOR' : Flow Monitor not supported on interface FastEthernet1.

 

##### Data Port #####

Cat4500-X(config)#int te1/1
Cat4500-X(config-if)#ip flow monitor MONITOR input

 

The following is related URL which says Flow collection is supported on Port however it does not say Management Port that is why...

 

[Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Software Configuration Guide, Release IOS XE 3.3.0SG and IOS 15.1(1)SG]
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/15-1/XE_330SG/configuration/guide/config/fnf.html
Flow collection is supported on multiple targets (Port, VLAN, per-port per-VLAN
(FNF can be enabled on a specific VLAN on a given port)) and on a port-channel (FNF is configured on the port-channel interface,
rather than individual member ports).

 

##### Export from Management port - Export is possible! #####

Cat4500-X(config)#flow exporter EXPORT
Cat4500-X(config-flow-exporter)#destination 192.168.1.254 vrf mgmtVrf
Cat4500-X(config-flow-exporter)#source fastEthernet 1

Cat4500-X#sh flow exporter
Flow Exporter EXPORT:
Description: User defined
Export protocol: NetFlow Version 9
Transport Configuration:
Destination IP address: 192.168.1.254
VRF label: mgmtVrf
Source IP address: 192.168.1.1
Source Interface: FastEthernet1
Transport Protocol: UDP
Destination Port: 9995
Source Port: 60484
DSCP: 0x0
TTL: 255
Output Features: Not Used

Hi,

It appears that you need 03.08.00.E or later to get all the features you need. See link:

Currently the Cat4500-X is running on IOS-XE-Ver.3.6.9 but the bootflash has IOS-XE-Ver.3.9 so now I am going to try on upgrade version. Thank you for your quick feedback.

Glad to help!

It appears that you have both versions loaded on the flash. So, it is just a matter of changing the boot variable to 03.09.00.E.152-5.E.bin and reloading the switch.

Hi Reza,

Thank you for your support, unfortunately even if it is IOS-XE-Ver.3.9.0.E, the output looks same.

Hi,

There doesn't seem to be any document supporting this function on the out-of-band management port. So, you may want to use a regular port for this purpose.
