Effective measurement in mesh networks

by Alexey Mikhailov for Freifunk

Network measurement is essential task for any network. Networks size and speed is growing. Packet-based solutions doesn't fit well into modern network, as computational complexity keeps getting higher. Most effective solutions are flow-based. Problem here is effective generating of flows at high-speed links. This problem is most essential for embeddable devices when we have limited CPU and memory resources. I propose new effective IPFIX probe for obtaining flows at high-speed links.
