Configuring Quanta switches

Configuring sFlow on a Quanta switch can be accomplished through the web interface (shown above), or through the command line interface.

The following command line commands configure a Quanta switch to sample packets at 1-in-2000, poll counters every 20 seconds and send sFlow to an analyzer ( using the default sFlow port (6343):

For each interface:
sflow collector-address
sflow rate 2000
sflow interval 20
A previous posting discussed the selection of sampling rates. Additional information can be found on the Quanta web site.

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