Configuring D-Link switches

The following commands configure a D-Link xStack® DGS-3600 series switch (, sampling packets at 1-in-512, polling counters every 20 seconds and sending sFlow to an analyzer ( over UDP using the default sFlow port (6343):

enable sflow
create sflow analyzer_server 1 owner analyzer1 timeout infinite collectoraddress
create sflow counter_poller ports all analyzer_server_id 1 interval 20
create sflow flow_sampler ports all analyzer_server_id 1 rate 512

A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the D-Link web site.

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