  • Sampling rate—Packets are sampled, on average, once for every rate-number of packets.

  • Maximum cpu sample limit—Maximum number of packets per second sampled before sample throttling takes effect.

  • Agent IP—IP address inserted into the sFlow data packets to identify the sFlow switch.

  • Collectors—To which IP address and port, and from which virtual router, the sFlow packets are sent.

  • Port Status—Enabled or disabled for statistics gathering.

  • Port Sample-rate—Shows the sampling rate configured for the port and the actual rate if CPU throttling has taken effect.

  • Port Subsampling factor—for details, see the command configure sflow max-cpu-sample-limit.


To display the sFlow configuration on your system, use the following command:
