Configuring Alcatel-Lucent switches

The following configuration enables sFlow monitoring of all interfaces on an Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch switch (, sampling packets at 1-in-512, polling counters every 30 seconds and sending the sFlow to an analyzer ( on UDP port 6343 (the default sFlow port):
sflow agent ip
sflow receiver 1 name InMon address udp-port 6343
sflow sampler 1 port 1/1-20 receiver 1 rate 512
sflow poller 1 port 1/1-20 receiver 1 interval 30
The switches also support the sFlow MIB for configuration.

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