More and more flow exporting vendors are making the move to IPFIX and at Plixer, we feel that implementing RFC 5610 should be part of the decision. The reason for this is because IPFIX is capable of exporting everything in NetFlow v5 as well as additional fields such as top multicast addresses, IPv6 addresses, packet lengths, MPLS labels, VLANs, MAC addresses and several other details and performance metrics that the vendor can decide on and even make up. Without RFC 5610, the IPFIX collector doesn’t know how to decipher these sometimes proprietary elements.Michael Patterson
