Flow-based measurement is a popular method for various network
monitoring usages.  The sharing of flow-based information for
monitoring applications having different requirements raises some
open issues in terms of measurement system scalability, flow-based
measurement flexibility, and export reliability that IP Flow
Information Export (IPFIX) Mediation may help resolve.  This 
document describes some problems related to flow-based 
measurement that network administrators have been facing,
and then it describes IPFIX Mediation applicability examples 
along with the problems.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IP Flow Information Export Working Group of the IETF.
