sFlow available on Juniper PTX series routers

sFlow functionality introduced on the PTX1000 and PTX10000 platforms—Starting in Junos OS Release 18.2R1, the PTX1000 and PTX10000 routers support sFlow, a network monitoring protocol for high-speed networks. With sFlow, you can continuously monitor tens of thousands of ports simultaneously. The mechanism used by sFlow is simple, not resource intensive, and accurate.  - New and Changed Features

The recent article, sFlow available on Juniper MX series routers, describes how Juniper is extending sFlow support to include routers to provide visibility across their entire range of switching and routing products.

Universal support for industry standard sFlow as a base Junos feature reduces the operational complexity and cost of network visibility for enterprises and service providers. Real-time streaming telemetry from campus switches, routers, and data center switches, provides centralized, real-time, end-to-end visibility needed to troubleshoot, optimize, and account for network usage.

Analytics software is a critical factor in realizing the full benefits of sFlow monitoring. Choosing an sFlow analyzer discusses important factors to consider when selecting from the range of open source and commercial sFlow analysis tools.
