source-ip address
Enter the keywords source-ip then the IP source address in IP address format.
destination-ip address
Enter the keywords destination-ip then the IP destination address in IP address format.
protocol number [tcp | udp]
Enter the keyword protocol then one of the protocol type keywords: tcp, udp, or protocol number The protocol number range is from 0 to 255. .

Usage Information

This command provides egress port information for a given IP flow. This information is useful in identifying which interface the packet follows in the case of Port-channel and Equal Cost Multi Paths. Use this command for routed packed only. For switched packets, use the show port-channel-flow command.

The show ip flow command does not compute the egress port information when load-balance mac hashing is also configured due to insufficient information (the egress MAC is not available).

S-Series produces the following error message: %Error: Unable to read IP route table.

DellEMC# show ip flow interface te 2/42 protocol tcp
Flow: 6
Ingress interface: Te 2/42
Egress Interface: Te 2/43
