    Hi everyone,

    I am curious about Flowd-vSRX process as shown below

    There is no documents I was able to find about this on google.

     

    root> show system processes extensive
    last pid: 1357; load averages: 0.03, 0.08, 0.07 up 0+00:10:07 05:44:08
    111 processes: 3 running, 90 sleeping, 18 waiting

    Mem: 188M Active, 65M Inact, 958M Wired, 198M Cache, 69M Buf, 587M Free
    Swap:


    PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU COMMAND
    12 root 1 171 52 0K 12K RUN 0 8:17 97.46% idle: cpu0
    11 root 1 171 52 0K 12K CPU1 1 9:23 0.00% idle: cpu1
    1150 root 5 76 0 962M 914M select 0 0:41 0.00% flowd_vsrx <------------------

     

    Thanks and have a good weekend!!

    Flowd is a daemon/process specifically implemented on SRX platforms and is responsible for traffic forwarding.
