The IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) protocol defines how IP Flow
information can be exported from routers, measurement probes, or
other devices.  This document provides guidelines for the
implementation and use of the IPFIX protocol.  Several sets of
guidelines address Template management, transport-specific issues,
implementation of Exporting and Collecting Processes, and IPFIX
