SFlow problems with HP Procurve 2810



Hey Guys, I have some problems getting sflow to work on a HP Procurve 2810. I think my configuration on the Switch is just fine. Sflow is enabled and sending Datagrams. But PRTG is not recieving any data. The sensor is stuck in "grey" mode. All other sensors (not sflow) are just working fine. Any thoughts what could be wrong?

Dear PeterKnasalla

In this case, please manually pause the Sflow sensor. Then please run the Sflow tester. Enter the device address / port and start the test. Do you get any flows there?
