How to configure sFlow on Dell PowerConnect switches


These instructions assume:

Access the switch CLI

  1. Telnet or SSH into the switch.
  2. Enter privileged mode by typing enable and entering your enable password.

Configure sFlow

Run the following command. Items that are between { } and in bold should be replaced with values specific to the environment being configured.

For the third and fourth lines, you’ll need to determine the port address range for which you’d like to export flow. For example, for a 16-port single chassis switch, you’d use 1/g1-1/g16.

sflow 1 destination {AuvikCollectorIP}
sflow 1 destination owner Auvik
sflow 1 polling Ethernet {gi1/0/1-4} 60
sflow 1 sampling Ethernet {gi1/0/1-4} 1024

Confirm the settings

Run the following command to confirm the configuration: 

show sflow 1 destination 
show sflow 1 polling
show sflow 1 sampling
