It can take multiple full views. It's also faster than an MX104.

I wouldn't load one to 80g, but at 10-20G, it creates no bottleneck.

The entire packet-pipeline is in software. IPFIX is not sampled, it's
1:1 only AFAIK. It's also lacking some features, meaning you'd need to
filter through pmacct to add BGP informations.

Best regards,
