Introduction

This document provides sFlow configuration examples.

Prerequisites

The configuration examples in this document were created and verified in a lab environment, and all the devices were started with the factory default configuration. When you are working on a live network, make sure you understand the potential impact of every command on your network.

This document assumes that you have basic knowledge of sFlow.

Restrictions and guidelines

When you configure sFlow, follow these restrictions and guidelines:

·           You can specify only the random sampling mode (the default).

·           For the remote sFlow collector to receive sFlow packets, the IP address of the sFlow collector specified on the sFlow agent must be the same with that of the remote sFlow collector.

·           If the number of packets sampled by an interface is too much in a heavy traffic network, increase the flow sampling interval. If an interface samples insufficient packets in a light traffic network, decrease the flow sampling interval.

·           If an interface collects data too frequently in a heavy traffic network, increase the counter sampling interval. If the sampling statistics is not accurate in a light traffic network, decrease the counter sampling interval.

Example: Configuring sFlow

Network configuration

As shown in Figure 1, perform the following tasks:

·           Configure flow sampling to sample packets on Device A and Device B.

·           Configure counter sampling to periodically collect the counter information on Device A and Device B.

Figure 1 Network diagram

 

Analysis

To obtain interface counter information and packet information, you must configure both flow sampling and counter sampling.
