Configuring sFlow export from ZTE and Edge-Core switches.

This blog is to enlighten you about configuration to export sFlow from ZTE and  Edge-core switches.

ZTE switches:

The sFlow commands for these switches are as follows:

sFlow commands:

sflow enable
sflow agent-config ipv4-address
sflow collector-config ipv4-address
For each interface:
interface
sflow-sample-rate ingress
sflow-sample-rate egress
exit

 
Sample configuration

sflow enable
sflow agent-config ipv4-address 192.168.2.100
sflow collector-config ipv4-address 192.168.2.210 9996
interface gei_0/1
sflow-sample-rate ingress 1024
sflow-sample-rate egress 1024
exit
Note: Ingress and Egress should be enabled on all the interfaces and the sample rate for both should be the same.

Edge-Core switches:

The following are the commands enabled on these switches to export sFlow information:

sflow receiver Destination IP Address> port
For each interface:
interface
sflow flow-sampling
sflow counter-sampling

 
Sample configuration

sflow receiver 1 192.168.2.210 port  9996
interface te1
sflow flow-sampling 1024 1
sflow counter-sampling 30 1

No additional configuration is required apart from configuring these devices to export sflow(the one mentioned above) at a product level as it will automatically capture the packets reaching the server on UDP port 9996 and start displaying the data.
