Cisco Netflow on Sub-Interfaces

Hello Experts,

I never really understood if its necessary to configure netflow on sub-interfaces or just on the physical interface. For example, our WAN circuit is physically connected to Gi 0/0. We have sub-interface of Gi0/0/2928. Both interfaces are currently configured as follows:

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 no ip address
 load-interval 30
 duplex full
 speed 10

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.2938
 description BT MPLS CID SHI/CU-SHI/BT NP432 (supplier 2013-04655-k01)
 encapsulation dot1Q 2938
 ip address 10.1.243.38 255.255.255.252
 no ip unreachables
 ip flow ingress
 ip flow egress
 ip virtual-reassembly in
 no cdp enable
 service-policy output Shape-Ethernet-QoS
end

As you can see, netflow is configured on the sub-interface but we don't have it configured on our physical interface. Should we have it configured on both?

Regards

Carlton

Enabling Netflow on the physical interface will capture everything going through it and its sub-interfaces. Enabling it only on the sub-interface will capture only what traverses the sub-interface. If you have only one sub-interface for 802.11q processing, then it makes no difference which one you have it on, but enabling it on both will create double entries for the same flows.

Are there any other sub interfaces that you want to monitor?  And do you want to monitor the L3 traffic that is going through the physical interface such as routing protocols and link status packets?

Hi Jody, thats great.

eeRoot, there are no other sub-interfaces I want to monitor.
