Question about setting up sflow with Fortigate



I am setting up sflow to receive date from my Fortigate firewall. I am receiving data but the sensor show grey. Not really sure why.

I will post my settings below.

Firewall settings collector-ip : collector-port : 6343

set sflow-sampler enable set sample-rate 512 set polling-interval 5

My PRTG sensor is set to poll every 15 Seconds as default.

Thanks Wayne B.
