COLLECTOR

Collector Management provides functions for managing a Netvisor Collector or an sFlow Collector.

Specific licenses are required for each type of collector and instructions are detailed in the License section of this user guide. UNUM automatically detects the Netvisor® and sFlow Collectors.

To configure sFlow on a Netvisor ONE switch, please refer to the appropriate Configuration Guide for the software.


Note: The default Netvisor and sFlow collectors are automatically created upon using the Add Fabric functionality. The Netvisor Collector is enabled by default and you need need to enable the sFlow Collector as required. Modifying, deleting, or editing Collectors can cause stability issues and should only be done with Pluribus Networks TAC support for troubleshooting purposes.
