Detailed Description

A single IPFIX Information Element definition.

An Information Element defines the type of data in each field of a record. This structure may be contained in an fbInfoModel_t, in which case the name field contians the information element name, or an an fbTemplate_t, in which case the canon field references the fbInfoElement_t contained within the Information Model.

Field Documentation

const struct fbInfoElement_st* fbInfoElement_st::canon

Pointer to canonical copy of IE.

Set by fbInfoElementCopyToTemplate(), and valid only for template IEs.

uint32_t fbInfoElement_st::ent

Private Enterprise Number.

Set to 0 for IETF-defined IEs.

uint32_t fbInfoElement_st::flags


Bitwise OR of FB_IE_F_* constants. Use Macros to get units and semantic

uint16_t fbInfoElement_st::len

Information element length in octets.

uint32_t fbInfoElement_st::midx

Multiple IE index.

Must be 0 for model IEs. Defines the ordering of identical IEs in templates. Set and managed automatically by the fbTemplate_t routines.

const char* fbInfoElement_st::name

Information element name.

Storage for this is managed by fbInfoModel. Valid only for model IEs.

uint16_t fbInfoElement_st::num

Information Element number.

Does not include the on-wire enterprise bit; i.e. num & 0x8000 == 0 even if ent > 0.

union { ... } fbInfoElement_st::ref

Information element name.
