AggregateFilter -- Click element; filters packets based on aggregate annotation



Ports: 1 input, 1-254 outputs
Processing: push
Drivers: userlevel
Package: analysis (core)


Filters packets based on their aggregate annotations. AggregateFilter's configuration string is an arbitrary number of filters, which are ACTION-AGGREGATES pairs. Packets are tested against the filters in order and processed according to the ACTION in the first filter that matched. A packet matches a filter if its aggregate annotation is listed in that filter's AGGREGATES. Each ACTION is either a port number, which specifies that the packet should be sent out on that port; 'allow', which is equivalent to '0'; or 'drop' or 'deny', which means drop the packet. Packets that match none of the filters are dropped. AggregateFilter has an arbitrary number of outputs. The AGGREGATES arguments are space-separated lists of aggregate values, which are unsigned integers. You can also specify ranges like '0-98'. The special AGGREGATES 'all' and '-' both correspond to all aggregates. AggregateFilter will warn about aggregate filters that match no packets, or AGGREGATES components that were ignored (because of an earlier filter matching the same aggregate).


This configuration filters out a couple aggregates from the output of AggregateIPFlows.
