netflow_parser

A netflow_parser library for Cisco V5, V7, V9, IPFIX written in Rust. Supports chaining of multple versions in the same stream. ({v5 packet}, {v7packet}, {v5packet}, {v9packet}, etc.)

References

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NetFlow

Example:

V5:

use netflow_parser::{NetflowParser, NetflowPacketResult};

let v5_packet = [0, 5, 2, 0, 3, 0, 4, 0, 5, 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,];
match NetflowParser::default().parse_bytes(&v5_packet).first() {
    Some(NetflowPacketResult::V5(v5)) => assert_eq!(v5.header.version, 5),
    Some(NetflowPacketResult::Error(e)) => println!("{:?}", e),
    _ => (),
}

Want Serialization such as JSON?

Structures fully support serialization. Below is an example using the serde_json macro:

use serde_json::json;
use netflow_parser::NetflowParser;

let v5_packet = [0, 5, 2, 0, 3, 0, 4, 0, 5, 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,];
println!("{}", json!(NetflowParser::default().parse_bytes(&v5_packet)).to_string());

Output:

[{"V5":{"header":{"count":1,"engine_id":7,"engine_type":6,"flow_sequence":33752069,"sampling_interval":2057,"sys_up_time":{"nanos":672000000,"secs":50332},"unix_nsecs":134807553,"unix_secs":83887623,"version":5},"sets":[{"d_octets":66051,"d_pkts":101124105,"dst_addr":"4.5.6.7","dst_as":515,"dst_mask":5,"dst_port":1029,"first":{"nanos":87000000,"secs":67438},"input":515,"last":{"nanos":553000000,"secs":134807},"next_hop":"8.9.0.1","output":1029,"pad1":6,"pad2":1543,"protocol_number":8,"protocol_type":"Egp","src_addr":"0.1.2.3","src_as":1,"src_mask":4,"src_port":515,"tcp_flags":7,"tos":9}]}}]

Filtering for a specific version

use netflow_parser::{NetflowParser, NetflowPacketResult};

let v5_packet = [0, 5, 2, 0, 3, 0, 4, 0, 5, 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,];
let parsed = NetflowParser::default().parse_bytes(&v5_packet);

let v5_parsed: Vec<NetflowPacketResult> = parsed.iter().filter(|p| p.is_v5()).map(|p| p.clone()).collect();

Re-Exporting flows

Netflow Parser now supports parsed V5, V7, V9, IPFix can be re-exported back into bytes.

let packet = [
    0, 5, 0, 1, 3, 0, 4, 0, 5, 0, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3,
    4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1,
    2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
];
if let NetflowPacketResult::V5(v5) = NetflowParser::default()
    .parse_bytes(&packet)
    .first()
    .unwrap()
{
    assert_eq!(v5.to_be_bytes(), packet);
}

V9/IPFix notes:

Parse the data ('&[u8]' as any other versions. The parser (NetflowParser) holds onto already parsed templates, so you can just send a header/data flowset combo and it will use the cached templates.) To see cached templates simply use the parser for the correct version (v9_parser for v9, ipfix_parser for IPFix.)

use netflow_parser::NetflowParser;
let parser = NetflowParser::default();
dbg!(parser.v9_parser.templates);
dbg!(parser.v9_parser.options_templates);

To access templates flowset of a processed V9/IPFix flowset you can find the flowsets attribute on the Parsed Record. In there you can find Templates, Option Templates, and Data Flowsets.

Features

  • parse_unknown_fields - When enabled fields not listed in this library will attempt to be parsed as a Vec of bytes and the field_number listed. When disabled an error is thrown when attempting to parse those fields. Enabled by default.

Examples

Some examples has been included mainly for those who want to use this parser to read from a Socket and parse netflow. In those cases with V9/IPFix it is best to create a new parser for each router. There are both single threaded and multi-threaded examples in the examples directory.

To run:

cargo run --example netflow_udp_listener_multi_threaded

or

cargo run --example netflow_udp_listener_single_threaded
