    need assistance with configuring sFlow and sending info to an external monitoring tool.

    gilbert.aispuro New Member

      Currently I have followed the instructions which had me enter the following commands and still no luck:

       

      ip flow export destination 192.168.x.x 6343  (this is pointing to the external tool collector and port 6343)

      ip flow export template timeout-rate 5

      ip flow cache timeout active 1

       

       

      and

       

      interface gigabit-eth 0/1

        description Customer LAN

        encapsulation 802.1q

        no shutdown

      !

      !

      interface gigabit-eth 0/1.1

        description DATA

        vlan-id 10

        ip address  192.168.x.1  255.255.255.0

        ip flow ingress

        ip flow egress

        no shutdown

      !

       

      Is there anything else I'm missing?

          Okay, I figured it out. I configured the port for sFlow (6343) instead of NetFlow (2055) and "ip ffe" needs to be configured on the interface

           

          Seems the Total Access 908e routers, NetVanta 5600 routers and all other Adtran routers only support NetFlow and not sFlow.

           

           

          EDIT (Working Config):


          ip flow export destination 192.168.x.x 2055 source gig 0/5.1 (I am sourcing only on the WAN interface so I can exclude internal traffic)

          ip flow export template timeout-rate 5

          ip flow cache timeout active 1

           

          int gig 0/5.1

          ip ffe (must be entered in order for this to work. If you do a sho run, it will not be shown but if you do a "sho ip ffe" then you'll see it's enabled.)

          ip flow ingress

          ip flow egress

           

           

          This is a good posting just in case any one else wonders.

           

          BTW I am using LogicMonitor as my external source.
