How to configure sFlow on Arista switches

Follow

These instructions assume:

Access the device 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. Replace <AuvikCollectorIP> with the IP address of your Auvik collector, and <sampleRate> with the desired sample rate egress: 128, 256, 512, or 1024. By default, Arista uses port 6343 for sFlow.

switch(config)#sflow destination <AuvikCollectorIP>
switch(config)#sflow source <AristaInternalIP>
switch(config)#sflow polling-interval 60
switch(config)#sflow sample dangerous <sampleRate>
switch(config)#sflow no flow polling-interval

Confirm the settings

Run the following command to confirm the configuration: 

show sflow
show sflow interfaces
