To exchange experiences with, and to discuss ideas on the usage of NetFlow/IPFIX in network management, the IRTF/NMRG, together with the European EMANICS Network of Excellence, organized a one-day workshop in October 2008. This paper presents a report of that meeting.





We would like to thank Heinz-Gerd Hegering and Helmut Reiser (Leibniz-Rechenzentrum) for hosting this workshop. This workshop was supported in part by the IST Network of Excellence EMANICS, funded by the European Union under contract number FP6-2004-IST-026854-NoE.
