Your Vote:



I'm Trying to get sflow working with a cisco 4500.

The sflow tester is receiving faild packets. already set it to sflow v5 and took out the long attributes and the counter values but i can't get it to won't work.

do you have a sample config for cisco?

my current config is very basic:

flow exporter export1 destination export-protocol netflow-v5 transport udp 1234

! flow record record1 match ipv4 source address match ipv4 destination address match ipv4 protocol collect ipv4 protocol collect transport destination-port collect transport source-port ! flow monitor monitor1 record record1 exporter export1 cache timeout active 60 cache timeout inactive 30 cache entries 1000

! interface GigabitEthernet 3/25 ip flow monitor monitor1 input

Dear Stijn

We don't have sample configurations. Are you getting only failed packets, or just a lot of them? Please send a screenshot of the sFlow tester. If you like to have some privacy regarding this, please contact [email protected] and attach the screenshot as file attachment.
