Additional information can be found on the Extreme Networks web site.
See Trying out sFlow for suggestions on getting started with sFlow monitoring and reporting.
Note: Extreme Networks switches support automatic backoff of sampling rates based on a settable samples-per-second threshold. This mechanism ensures that a poorly selected sampling rate will not generate excessive numbers of samples (see sFlow Version 5, section 4.2.2).
