Packet-flow sampling

The Vyatta router, acting as an sFlow agent, samples dropped and nondropped packets. Taking a sample involves extracting information from the packet, including trajectory information (for example, source and destination interface and next hop). For dropped packets, the Vyatta router adds the reason for dropping the packet to the extracted information.
