Recently I...Hi Peter, thank you for your response. <br />Recently I used sflow-rt, with the application mininet-dashboard / scripts / metrics.js / metric / json. I found the statistics of each interface (port) in " trends" . Considering the eth2 port of switch s11 uses data=11234000 bits per sencod, then the bandwidth used by this port is calculated as follows:<br />Utilization %=(data*100)/(bandwidth*interval) <br /><br />With the bandwidth (bits per second) is the value set when we create the link and the interval is the capture period<br />is correct?<br />Sdn projecthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15855241872298538817noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1978652979840829013.post-56579599271341546262019-11-30T22:25:49.472-08:002019-11-30T22:25:49.472-08:00Yes - "link utilization" is the same as ...Yes - "link utilization" is the same as "bandwidth utilization". You can calculate the bits per second by taking successive sFlow counter samples and subtracting the values of the ifinoctets/ifoutoctets counters * 8 / time between the counter samples. Calculate utilization by dividing the bits per second value by the speed of the port - the speed is included in the sFlow counter sample along with the other interface counters.<br /><br />You can use <a href="https://blog.sflow.com/search/label/sflowtool" rel="nofollow">sflowtool</a> to decode the sFlow data. The <a href="https://blog.sflow.com/search/label/sFlow-RT" rel="nofollow">sFlow-RT</a> analyzer performs the calculation for you.Peterhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00856599914190257147noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1978652979840829013.post-22552392408976651922019-11-30T17:54:55.245-08:002019-11-30T17:54:55.245-08:00Hi

Do you mean bandwidth utilization??<br />And I want a link for that ( how to extract the bandwidth utilization for each link using sflow). <br />Thank youSdn projecthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15855241872298538817noreply@blogger.com
