Techniques are provided herein for offering line rate flow telemetry on all ports of a Fibre Channel (FC) switch by implementing a bidirectional flow correlation engine inside an FC switching Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). This enables a specialized set of flow analytics solutions to be implemented using machine learning models. These models may be trained with full flow visibility, including every outlier, and may have very high prediction accuracy. This may enable building of a switch integrated solution for this use case without involving external appliances.
