This article provides steps on how to configure Alcatel devices to export Netflow.
1. Enter your SolarWinds Netflow server information:
sflow receiver 1 name address udp-port packet-size 1400 version 5 timeout 0
Receiver Name can be set to any one-word string you want (e.g. OrionFlowCollector). Port should be set to 2055 by default. Packet-size should be set to 1400, version should be 5, and timeout should be 0.
2. Configure a sample on all desired interfaces:
If you want to configure ports 18 and 35 to sample for a switch with a single blade and 48 ports, you would enter:
sflow sampler 1 1/18 receiver 1 rate 1 sample-hdr-size 128
sflow sampler 1 1/35 receiver 1 rate 1 sample-hdr-size 128
3. Configure one poller to get sFlow counters:
sflow poller 1 receiver 1 interval 5
Write configuration to switch:
