How do I know which computer is on which interface of my HP ProCurve with sFlow ?



Hello, I present to my tutor your software and the network of our company is equipped with HP Procurve. I introduced sFlow, and it correspond corresponds to what we were looking. Exept one point, is it possible to know which computers are connected to which interface? With a MIB? Or sFlow can know the ip address and make a relation with our AD or DHCP?

Forgive my English.


dhcp interface mib sflow

Sorry, that's not possible with the sFlow sensor :( You might want to try the SNMP traffic sensor, it will read the port description of the switch which can be modified in the switch configuration. Although this will be a manual process, not automated in case something changes.

This can be done with the port name template in the device configuration.
