configure sflow poll-interval

configure sflow poll-interval seconds


Configures the sFlow counter polling interval.

Syntax Description

seconds Specifies the number of seconds between polling each counter. The value can range from 0 to 3600 seconds.


The default polling interval is 20 seconds.

Usage Guidelines

Each sFlow statistics counter is polled at regular intervals, and this data is then sent to the sFlow collector. This command is used to set the polling interval. To manage CPU load, polling for sFlow enabled ports are distributed over the polling interval, so that all ports are not polled at the same instant. For example, if the polling interval is 20 seconds and there are twenty counters, data is collected successively every second.

Specifying a poll interval of 0 (zero) seconds disables polling.


The following command sets the polling interval to 60 seconds:

configure sflow poll-interval 60
