https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/prod...-11-3-0/9.html

 

Gather the IP addresses of the sFlow receivers that you want to add to the BIG-IP® system configuration. You can use IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
Note: You can add an sFlow receiver to the BIG-IP system only if you are assigned either the Resource 
Administrator or Administrator user role. 
Add an sFlow receiver to the BIG-IP system when you want to use the receiver to monitor system performance. Do this by following the steps below:

1. On the Main tab, click System > Performance > sFlow. The sFlow screen opens.
2. Click Add. 
3. In the Name field, type a name for the sFlow receiver.
4. In the Address field, type the IPv4 or IPv6 address on which the sFlow receiver listens for UDP datagrams.
Note: The IP address of the sFlow receiver must be reachable from a self IP address on the BIG-IP system.
5. Click Finish.
