How to configure sFlow on 3Com 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. Replace <AuvikCollectorIP> with the IP address of your Auvik collector, and <AuvikPort> with one of the following port numbers: 2055, 2056, 4432, 4739, 6343, 9995, or 9996. Replace <deviceIP> with the IP address of the device where you’d like the packets to originate.

sflow agent ip <deviceIP>
sflow collector ip <AuvikCollectorIP> port <AuvikPort>
sflow version 9
sflow interval 60

Then, configure each interface for which you want to send sFlow:

interface <interface name, i.e: ethernet 1/0>
sflow enable <inbound/outbound/both>
sflow sampling-mode random
sflow sampling-rate <rate, 128, 256, 512, 1024>

Confirm the settings

Run the following command to confirm the configuration: 

display sflow
