Hard sFlow sampling limitations?

Dear,


reading the documentation for the software V200R010 of the switches S6720-EI on how to configure the feature sFlow sampling (http://support.huawei.com/hedex/pages/EDOC1000135317AEG0221R/05/EDOC1000135317AEG0221R/05/resources/dc/dc_cfg_sflow_0006.html ), I find a quite limiting note considering that the device-models have 24 or 58 ports:





This limitation of monitoring with sFlow (flow sampling) only 8 interfaces. Does it also apply to the S6720-EI model or is it a warning-notice for lower-performance equipments?


In what way can we analyze that the sampling process is not suffering degradation / overflow and the sampling has the adequate performance?


In case the limitation is valid also for the S6720-EI model, what tweak would allow flow sampling of the 24's 10G ports?. For example, of the S6720-30C-EI-24S-AC model?


I appreciate your experiences since the documentation does not justify this note.


Regards!

Hi,

I use nfsen + nfdump. I have a lot of Huawei devices exporting sflow to this server and everything works properly. I would recommend you using this flow tool.

Hi,

I have some of S6720-30C-EI-24S-AC in my network and I have no problems sampling sflow in all ports in inbound direction.

I haven't noticed any performance degradation so far.

What collector are you using? We have tested sfcapd, sflowtool and nProbe and none can interpret the flows exported from Huawei despite seeing them in Wireshark well parsed as Sflow V5.

Hello guys - just info - did you resolve your issue? As I had several S6720-EI running R010 with few patches that send-out sFlow data correctly and nfsen + nfdump was able to collect and analyze that data..However after I moved to R011 firmware the sfcapd in nfsen is not able to decrypt/read the data Huawei send - it seems there was some difference..@user_2844477 can you confirm what exact versions of firmware you run on S6720 and what versions/command line syntax you run sfcapd with?Thanks &BR
