sFlow Receiver Configuration Fields

Field Description
Index Selects the receiver for which data is to be displayed or configured. The allowed range is 1 to 8.
Owner String The entity making use of this sFlowRcvrTable entry. The empty string indicates that the entry is currently unclaimed and the receiver configuration is reset to the default values. An entity wishing to claim an sFlowRcvrTable entry must ensure that the entry is unclaimed before trying to claim it. The entry is claimed by setting the owner string. The entry must be claimed before any changes can be made to other sampler objects.
Time Remaining The time (in seconds) remaining before the sampler is released and stops sampling. A value of 0 essentially means the receiver is not configured. When configuring the sFlow receiver settings, you must select the Timeout Mode option before you can configure a Timeout Value.
Maximum Datagram Size The maximum number of data bytes that can be sent in a single sample datagram. The manager should set this value to avoid fragmentation of the sFlow datagrams. The default value is 1400. The allowed range is 200 to 9116.
Address The IP address of the sFlow collector. If set to no sFlow datagrams will be sent.
Port The destination port for sFlow datagrams. The allowed range is 1 to 65535.
Datagram Version The version of sFlow datagrams that should be sent.
