Multiple sensors with sFfow



We are using the free version of PRTG looking to maybe buy the full version.

My question is:

I have HP Procurve switches that can only have 3 sFlow instances running at once. I can enable multiple ports for each instance however (including ALL). If I did that, would PRTG see all the ports as 1 sensor for the device and then 1 graph? How can I get the whole switch monitored but break up each port?

Thanks for helping! Patrick

you could try using the [Interface]-Filter (see PRTG 9 Manual: Filter Rules for xFlow and Packet Sniffer Sensors) to use several Sflow-Sensors all listening to the same flows but then each filtering for a different interface.

best regards.
