Collector Management provides functions for controlling a Netvisor Collector or managing 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® One 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 separately. You cannot edit or delete Netvisor Collectors using this interface.

Selecting Manager → Fabric → Manage Collector displays the Collector Management dashboard.

Stopping a Netvisor Collector

While a Netvisor collector is running it is not possible to delete a Fabric using the Fabric dashboard. You must first stop the Netvisor collector.

To do so, select the Status switch in the dashboard and set to off.

The dashboard will change from [running] to gray (stopped) indicating the current status of the Netvisor collector. Rollovers also provide Netvisor Collector status.

Note: Data collection is halted when the Netvisor collector is stopped.
