configure sflow collector ipaddress

configure sflow collector {ipaddress} ipaddress {port udp-port-number} {vr vr_name}


Configures the sFlow collector IP address.

Syntax Description

ipaddress Specifies the IP address to send the sFlow data.
udp-port-number Specifies the UDP port to send the sFlow data.

Specifies from which virtual router to send the sFlow data.

Note: User-created VRs are supported only on the platforms listed for this feature in the ExtremeXOS and Switch Engine 31.7 Feature License Requirements document.


The following values are the defaults for this command:
  • UDP port number—6343
  • Virtual router—VR-Mgmt (previously called VR-0)

Usage Guidelines

This command allows you to configure where to send the sFlow data. You must specify an IP address for the sFlow data collector, and you may specify a particular UDP port, if your collector uses a non-standard port. You may also need to specify from which virtual router to send the data.

You can configure up to four sFlow collectors. Each unique IP address/UDP port/virtual router combination identifies a collector.

Both the commands unconfigure ports monitor vlan and unconfigure sflow collector will reset the collector parameters to the default.


The following command specifies that sFlow data should be sent to port 6343 at IP address using the virtual router VR-Mgmt:

configure sflow collector ipaddress
