Default Level

3: Management level

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

sFlow is a traffic monitoring technique that collects and analyzes traffic statistics. An sFlow agent encapsulates traffic statistics into sFlow packets and sends the sFlow packets to specified sFlow collectors. To send the sFlow packets to a certain sFlow collector, configure an IP address for the sFlow agent as the source address of sFlow packets. The sFlow collector analyzes and displays the traffic statistics based on the traffic in the received sFlow packets. Network administrators can view the traffic statistics on a specified interface based on the IP address of the sFlow agent and interface number.

Prerequisites

  • The IP address configured as the source address must exist on the device.
  • A VPN instance has been created if the sFlow agent is located on a private network.

Configuration Impact

If you run the sflow agent command multiple times, only the latest configuration takes effect.

Precautions

A maximum of two sFlow agents can be configured in the system, and each VPN instance of an address family supports only one agent. The IP address of an agent must be a valid unicast IP address of an interface. If an IPv6 address is specified for an agent, the IPv6 address must be a global unicast address, but cannot be a link-local address.

Example

# Configure an IPv4 address for the sFlow agent.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] sflow agent ip 192.168.100.10

# Configure an IPv6 address for the sFlow agent.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] sflow agent ipv6 FC00::1

sflow collector

Function

The sflow collector command creates an sFlow collector and sets or modifies optional parameters for the sFlow collector.

The undo sflow collector command restores default values of optional parameters of the sFlow collector or deletes the sFlow collector.

By default, no sFlow collector is configured.

Format

sflow collector collector-id { ip [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ] ip-address | ipv6 [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ] ipv6-address } [ datagram-size datagram-size | port port-num | time-out time ] * [ description description ]

sflow collector collector-id { datagram-size datagram-size | port port-num } * [ description description ]

undo sflow collector collector-id [ datagram-size | port | description ] *

Parameters

Parameter

Description

Value

collector-id

Specifies the ID of an sFlow collector. This ID is used when you specify the collector in subsequent sFlow configuration.

The value is an integer that can be 1 or 2.

vpn-instance vpn-instance-name

Specifies the name of a VPN instance.

The value must be an existing VPN instance name.

ip-address

Specifies an IPv4 address of the sFlow collector.

The value is a value unicast IP address in X.X.X.X format, dotted decimal notation. The value cannot be 127.X.X.X.

ipv6-address

Specifies an IPv6 address for the sFlow collector.

The value is a 32-digit hexadecimal number in the format of X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X and is a valid global IPv6 unicast address.

datagram-size datagram-size

Specifies the maximum length of sFlow packets sent from an sFlow agent to an sFlow collector.

The value is an integer, in bytes. It ranges from 1024 to 8100. The default value is 1400.

The value is an integer that ranges from 1 to 65535. The default value is 6343.

description description

Specifies the description of an sFlow collector.

The value is a string of 1 to 255 case-sensitive characters without spaces.

time-out time

Specifies the aging time of an sFlow collector.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 3600, in seconds. The default value is 0, indicating that the sFlow collector is not aged out. If the default value is used, the aging time cannot be changed.

Views

System view

Default Level

3: Management level

Usage Guidelines

Usage scenario

sFlow is a traffic monitoring technique that collects and analyzes traffic statistics. An sFlow agent encapsulates traffic statistics into sFlow packets and sends the sFlow packets to all sFlow collectors. To send the sFlow packets to a certain sFlow collector, configure an sFlow collector used to receive sFlow packets and analyze traffic of sFlow packets. When both flow sampling and counter sampling are configured on an interface of an sFlow agent, the sFlow agent sends the flow sampling data and counter sampling data to one or two sFlow collectors. Because sFlow packets are sampled quickly and the number of sFlow packets sent every second is limited, run the sflow collector command with datagram-size length specified to set the maximum length of sFlow packets so that an sFlow packet carries more sampled data. This reduces the number of sent sFlow packets.

NOTE:

When you create an sFlow collector, specify the ID and IP address for the sFlow collector. If the aging time of the sFlow collector is not set, the sFlow collector is not aged out by default and the aging time cannot be changed.

Prerequisites

  • There is a reachable route between an sFlow agent and an sFlow collector.
  • A VPN instance has been created if the sFlow collector is located on a private network.

Configuration Impact

If you run the sflow collector command multiple times on the same address family and VPN instance, only the latest configuration takes effect.

Precautions

A maximum of two sFlow collectors can be configured in the system.

Example

# Configure an IPv4 address for the sFlow collector, and set the aging time of the sFlow collector to 100s.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] sflow collector 1 ip 192.168.100.10 time-out 100

# Configure an IPv6 address for the sFlow collector, and set the aging time of the sFlow collector to 100s.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] sflow collector 1 ipv6 FC00::1 time-out 100

sflow counter-sampling collector

Function

The sflow counter-sampling collector command specifies the target sFlow collector that receives counter sampling data.

The undo sflow counter-sampling collector command deletes the target sFlow collector.

By default, no target sFlow collector is specified.

Format

sflow counter-sampling collector { collector-id | all }

undo sflow counter-sampling collector { collector-id | all }

Parameters

Parameter

Description

Value

collector-id

Specifies the ID of the target sFlow collector that receives counter sampling data.

Usage Guidelines

Usage scenario

Counter sampling is based on time. An sFlow agent periodically obtains traffic statistics on an interface, encapsulates the traffic statistics into sFlow packets, and sends them to an sFlow collector. When multiple sFlow collectors are configured, you can run the sflow counter-sampling collector command to specify the target sFlow collector to receive the counter sampling data. Each interface can send sFlow sampling data to a maximum of two sFlow collectors.

When you run the sflow counter-sampling collector command to specify the first target sFlow collector on an interface, counter sampling is enabled on the interface. When you run the undo sflow counter-sampling collector command to delete the last target sFlow collector on an interface, counter sampling is disabled on the interface.

Prerequisites

An sFlow collector has been created using the sflow collector command.

Precautions

The sflow flow-sampling rate command only applies to Layer 2 physical interfaces, but does not apply to Eth-Trunk or Layer 3 interfaces.

An sFlow agent samples packets in a direction of an interface based on a sampling rate, analyzes packets, encapsulates sampled packets and analysis result into sFlow packets, and then sends the sFlow packets to an sFlow collector. The datagram size of sFlow packets is set using the sflow collector [ datagram-size datagram-size ] command. If only the information carried in the packet header is required, run the sflow flow-sampling max-header command to set the maximum length of data starting from the original packet header that can be copied from a sampled packet.

Precautions

The sflow flow-sampling rate command only applies to Layer 2 physical interfaces, but does not apply to Eth-Trunk or Layer 3 interfaces. However, this command takes effect on the Layer 3 interface which is switched from a Layer 2 interface using the undo portswitch command, and can take effect on Eth-Trunk member interfaces.

Example

# Set the maximum length of data starting from the original packet header that can be copied from a sampled packet to 256 bytes.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] sflow flow-sampling max-header 256

# Configure a port group pg1 that has member ports GE1/0/2 and GE1/0/3, and set the maximum length of data starting from the original packet header that can be copied from a sampled packet to 256 bytes for the port group pg1.

[HUAWEI] port-group pg1
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] group-member gigabitethernet 1/0/2
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] group-member gigabitethernet 1/0/3
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] sflow flow-sampling max-header 256

sflow flow-sampling rate

Function

The sflow flow-sampling rate command sets the sampling rate on an interface.

The undo sflow flow-sampling rate command restores the default sampling rate on an interface.

By default, the sampling rate on a 100GE interface is 1/204800, on a 40GE interface is 1/20480 and on other types of interfaces is 1/2048.

Format

sflow flow-sampling rate rate

undo sflow flow-sampling rate

Parameters

Parameter

Description

Value

rate rate

Specifies the sampling rate in the format of 1/rate. rate specifies the number of packets out of which the interface will sample a packet.

The rate is an integer that ranges from 256 to 1048576.

Usage Guidelines

Usage scenario

An sFlow agent samples packets in a direction of an interface based on a sampling rate, analyzes packets, encapsulates sampled packets and analysis result into sFlow packets, and then sends the sFlow packets to an sFlow collector. You can run the sflow flow-sampling rate command to set the sampling rate to limit the number of sampled packets.

Precautions

The sflow flow-sampling rate command only applies to Layer 2 physical interfaces, but does not apply to Eth-Trunk or Layer 3 interfaces. However, this command takes effect on the Layer 3 interface which is switched from a Layer 2 interface using the undo portswitch command, and can take effect on Eth-Trunk member interfaces. If you run the sflow flow-sampling rate command multiple times, only the latest configuration takes effect.

Example

# Set the sampling rate to 1/3072.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1
[HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] sflow flow-sampling rate 3072

# Configure a port group pg1 that has member ports of GE1/0/2 and GE1/0/3, and set the sampling rate to 1/3072 for the port group pg1.

[HUAWEI] port-group pg1
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] group-member gigabitethernet 1/0/2
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] group-member gigabitethernet 1/0/3
[HUAWEI-port-group-pg1] sflow flow-sampling rate 3072
