Configuring Flow Exports on Alcatel Devices

For NetFlow analysis, you need to configure your devices to export flows to Site24x7 On-Premise Poller, which is the NetFlow collector. The On-Premise Poller will be listening to the particular port to receive flows. Learn how to find the port number of your On-Premise Poller.

Configure flows (sFlow) on Alactel devices using the following commands:

sflow agent ip {LOOPBACK_IP}
sflow receiver 1 name sFlowTrend address {NETFLOW_SERVER_IP} udp-port {NETFLOW_SERVER_LISTENER_PORT} packet-size 1400 version 5 timeout 0

Enter global configuration mode on the router or Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC), and issue the following commands for each interface on which you want to enable flow:

sflow sampler 1 {INTERFACE_NAME} receiver 1 rate 1024
sflow poller 1 {INTERFACE_NAME} receiver 1 interval 5
