ProCurve 2910al sFlow

Hello,

I am having trouble configuring a ProCurve 2910al switch for sending sFlow packets.

As far as I can understand, on this model switch, I can configure sFlow directly from CLI, and not only through SNMP.

I am setting up according to this example:

sflow 1 destination 10.19.0.100 6343
sflow 1 polling ethernet 1-15 20
sflow 1 sampling ethernet 1-15 512


However on the destination server, I am running nfcapd (with sFlow support).
But I am not getting any data from the switch.

If I listen directly to the interface, I cannot see any UDP on port 6343.

The switch has previously been configured to use sFlow.

If I run:

walkmib 1.3.6.1.4.1.14706

I see the old configuration. Even if I set the old configuration parameters to zero or
their default setting, they show up there again eventually?

Is there a configuration parameter which I am missing, or have I completely misunderstood something?

Re: ProCurve 2910al sFlow

Hello,

Correct. By default, nfdump does not have sFlow support enabled. E.g. the package in the Ubuntu repository.

sFlow can however be enabled during compilation.

Therefore I must correct myself, from my first post stating I was using "nfcapd". I am using "sfcapd".


However, the problem is, as I see it, not within the client software.

But that I am not seeing any sFlow packages coming from the switch.

I have no idea where to look for debug info regarding this. Can anybody help me?

Update:

I have resolved the problem. It was not due to a switch problem. But a configuration issue, specific for my network setup, which I had overseen.
