A quick introduction to IPFIX

I recently gave a full-day course on flow measurement at the University of Zürich’s IfI summer school. The course itself was more or less a stack of my current research interests stapled together; one product was a nice summary version of a tutorial on the IPFIX protocol (on which I’ve worked on and off for the past nine years), together with an iPython notebook on the subject.

Slides are here, and the notebook is here. The live version is available from GitHub in the britram/ipfix_tutorial repository.

And as a bonus on the subject, here’s a video of me giving an interview about all this last year in Berlin on way too little sleep.
