Configuring Brocade switches

The following configuration enables sFlow monitoring of all interfaces on a Brocade (formerly Foundry) FGS switch, sampling packets at 1-in-512, polling counters every 30 seconds and sending the sFlow to an analyzer ( on UDP port 6343 (the default sFlow port):
fgs(config)# int e 0/1/1 to 0/1/24
fgs(config-mif-0/1/1-0/1/24)# sflow forwarding
fgs(config-mif-0/1/1-0/1/24)# exit
fgs(config)# sflow destination 6343
fgs(config)# sflow sample 512
fgs(config)# sflow polling-interval 30
fgs(config)# sflow enable
You can also use the following command to list the configuration settings:
fgs# show sflow
A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the Brocade web site.

See Trying out sFlow for suggestions on getting started with sFlow monitoring and reporting.
