Processing native sFlow data preserves all of the packet header information, including host MAC addresses (which are meaningful for edge switches), TCP header flags and option fields, VLAN and MPLS tags, TTL values and some of the packet payload.
Although IP version 6 is predicted to accommodate QoS within the packet header and allow the packets to be screened and prioritized, this will not be available for quite some time.
Whereas Diff-Serv uses bits within a packet header to define the level of service it should receive, another draft IETF standard, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), adds a 32-bit "label" to the packet to create a virtual path for it across the network.
Any packet header and content can be edited and packets can easily be replicated to support multicast applications.
In contrast to regular packet inspection, which looks only at some of the network packet header fields, deep packet inspection delves into the packet headers, examining the payload or content and enabling applications to make more sophisticated and complex assessments.
