Re: tcp/ip data logging with sflow.

Two articles I found handy:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SFlow

 

http://www.draware.dk/fileadmin/SolarWinds/Guide/AN-S6_sFlow-PCM-traffic-mon-final-081108.pdf  --- Section 4

 

HP has a lot of documentation/manuals on SFLOW and its functionality/uses.  I use Sflow for your exact purpose and has done it well for my implementations.

A good start to monitoring might be http://www.inmon.com/products/sFlowTrend.php, which is free for one switch at a time with no historical logging. Look at Inmon's other products for more advanced features. Other products to check out are Plixer Scrutinizer and Intermapper Flows.

One other product i forgot: ManageEngine's NetFlow Analyser also supports sFlow. I plan to test the Plixer and ManageEngine products in the near future.
