Configuring the sFlow Collector

Before configuring the sFlow agents, you must configure the sFlow collector. The sFlow collector receives sFlow datagrams from the sFlow agents. In this example, the sFlow collector has an IP address of, and a default port of 6343. The collector name is net-man-all, and the scope is fabric. If the scope is fabric, then additional switches that join the fabric receive the sFlow collector configuration. If the scope is local, then the sFlow collector is configured only on one switch.

CLI (network-admin@switch) > sflow-collector-create collector-ip collector-port 6343 name net-man-all scope fabric

You can add as many collectors as needed for your configuration.
