Configuring Allied Telesis switches

The recent Allied Ware Plus 2.1.1 release adds sFlow support to Allied Telesis switches.

The following commands configure an Allied Telesis switch to sample packets at 1-in-512, poll counters every 30 seconds and send sFlow to an analyzer ( over UDP using the default sFlow port (6343):

awplus> enable
awplus# configure terminal
awplus(config)# sflow collector ip port 6343
awplus(config)# interface port1.0.1-port1.0.24
awplus(config-if)# sflow sampling-rate 512
awplus(config-if)# sflow polling-interval 30
awplus(config-if)# set sflow collector ip
awplus(config-if)# exit
awplus(config)# sflow enable

A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the Allied Telesis web site.

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