Configuring Force10 switches

The following commands configure a Force10 switch (, sampling packets at 1-in-512, polling counters every 30 seconds and sending the sFlow to an analyzer ( over UDP using the default sFlow port (6343):
config> sflow collector agent-addr
config> sflow sample-rate 512
config> sflow polling 30
config> sflow enable
Then for each interface:
interface> sflow enable
You can also use the following command to list the configuration settings:

show sflow
A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the Force10 Networks web site.
See Trying out sFlow for suggestions on getting started with sFlow monitoring and reporting.
