Overview

This article provides steps on how to configure Alcatel devices to export Netflow.

Environment

  • All Netflow versions

Steps

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:
write memory
