Whether S series switches support sFlow

Sampled Flow (sFlow) is a traffic monitoring technology that collects and analyzes traffic statistics.
The sFlow system involves an sFlow agent embedded in a device and a remote sFlow collector. The sFlow agent obtains traffic statistics from an sFlow-enabled interface and encapsulates them into sFlow packets. When an sFlow packet buffer overflows or an sFlow packet expires (exceeding 1s), the sFlow agent sends the sFlow packets to the sFlow collector. The sFlow collector analyzes the sFlow packets and displays the traffic statistics in a report.

- S series modular switches support sFlow. However, X1E series cards, and XGE interfaces connected to the ACU2, ET1D2IPS0S00, ET1D2FW00S00, ET1D2FW00S01, and ET1D2FW00S02 cards do not support sFlow. Flow sampling and counter sampling can only be used on Layer 2 physical interfaces, including member interfaces of an Eth-Trunk, but cannot be used on Eth-Trunk interfaces and Layer 3 interfaces.
- The following S series fixed switches support sFlow:
