Article ID: KB6709 KB Last Updated: 06 Feb 2013Version: 7.0
This article provides information about debug flow filters.

  • ffilter

  • flow filters

Symptoms and Errors:

Debug data is not being captured.


The debug flow filters can be configured to be logical AND or OR statements.

OR operation:

When the filters are typed on separate lines, they will be logically OR:

set ffilter src-ip <ip address X>
set ffilter dst-ip <ip address Y>
set ffilter ip-proto <protocol #>

This will capture the data if the source OR destination matches the specified IP address OR if the data matches the specified IP protocol.

AND operation:

When the ffilters are typed on the same line, they will be logically AND:

set ffilter src-ip <ip address X> dst-ip <ip address Y> ip-proto <protocol#>

Only data, for which the source address matches the specified IP address (X) AND the destination address matches the specified IP address (Y) AND the protocol # matches the specified #, will be captured.  A match must be found for all statements or the data will not be captured.

Note: You can configure up to eight flow filters.
