Configuring IBM RackSwitch switches

The following commands configure an IBM RackSwitch, sampling packets at 1-in-1024, polling counters every 30 seconds and sending sFlow to an analyzer ( over UDP using the default sFlow port (6343):
RS(config)# sflow server
RS(config)# sflow port 6343
RS(config)# sflow enable
For each port:
RS(config)# interface port 1
RS(config-if)# sflow polling 30
RS(config-if)# sflow sampling 1024
A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the IBM web site.

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