is possible to configure instances of sflow in ProCurve Switch 4204vl

Hi there!

someone know if is possible to configure some instances of sflow in switch ProCurve Switch 4204vl?

In those swiches is only possible to configure, sflow, thru CLI with the command setmib; but when I use it:
Setmib SflowRcvrAddress.2 -o
In order to configure a second instance of sflow, the Switch shows:

ProCurve Switch 4204vl(config)# SETMIB sFlowRcvrAddress.2 -o 0C0A8005B
sFlowRcvrAddress.2: Unable to create.


Is there another way to configure sflow instances in switch 4204vl?

The 4200 doc's only mention "support" for sflow; no actual commands to configure
(adv traf mgt page-xxvii)

but this is the general doc :
http://h40060.www4.hp.com/procurve/uk/en/pdfs/application-notes/AN-S6_sFlow-PCM-traffic-mon-final-081108.pdf
that gives this syntax :
4.3 Activate sampling and polling
To activate sampling on a set of switch ports, use:
5406zl(config)# sFlow <1-3> sampling N
Where N is the number of sampled packets. N can vary between 0 (sampling disabled) and 16441700

btw " ProCurve Switch 4204vl(config)# SETMIB sFlowRcvrAddress.2 -o 0C0A8005B"

"0C0A8005B" is 9 characters; don't think that's correct.

Hi Pieter 't Hart
Thanks for the information!

Actually Sflow command is not available in Switch 4204vl.

In order to configure it, I used command setmib (please see attachments)

And works properly but only with one instance, but when I try to configure a second instance, using command:

setmib sFlowRcvrAddress.2 -o OA020165
Is showed:
sFlowRcvrAddress.2: Unable to create.

I used "sFlowRcvrAddress.2" in order to configure a Second instance.

My question is Is possible to configure a second instance using "sFlowRcvrAddress.2"?

when I used "sFlowRcvrAddress.1", the configuration is set properly.


in my first question I used "0C0A8005B" for the hexadecimal value ip addres, and was my mistake, the hexadecimal value is wrong.

Re: is possible to configure instances of sflow in ProCurve Switch 4204vl

is the second one also a typo?
"setmib sFlowRcvrAddress.2 -o OA020165"
firts char seems an kapital-O to me?
