Ubiquiti IPFIX Configuration

The following commands can be used to configure IPFIX flow reporting on Ubiquiti routers. First, enable IPFIX, or Netflow version 10 as it's shown in the configuration menus in EdgeOS.

set system flow-accounting netflow version 10

Then tell the router which interface to collect flow data from.

set system flow-accounting interface eth0

In this case we're collecting IPFIX flow data on interface eth0.

Next tell the router was IP address and port to send IPFIX flow data to.

set system flow-accounting netflow server port 4739

In this example the flow collection server is at and listening for IPFIX flows on port 4739. Be sure to commit the configuration, and if everything is working properly save it so settings will be applied when the router reboots next.
