sflow toplist with interface name [ifname] instead of port is [port] possible/howto?




is it possible to display the [ifname] instead of the [port] in sflow toplists / data tables? For Stacks and EtherChannel Links the interface snmp ifindex number (like 775, 1053, 1073741823) is not very readable. So it would be nice if the output can be changed to [ifname].

I took [port] and [ifName] from the setings page "snmp-compatibility-options" "identify ports".

Thanks and kind regards

Unfortunately, there is no option to have the port number translated into the interface name. The "SNMP Compatibility Options" that you found only apply to the SNMP sensors (e.g, SNMP Traffic), the sFlow sensor does not use this.
