SFlow Adapter Issue

Postby stanleymn » Tue Nov 11, 2008 2:11 pm

I have a Enterprise version of OmniPeek and OmniEngine version 5.1.4. I am trying to get the SFlow adapter to collect data properly. I installed the sflow adapter and selected it as the monitor option and I have a switch that is configured to output it's sflow collector info to this server. The default sflow port on the switch is 6363 and I hope the Adapter plug-in is the same. I basically get no information at all. I have tried to configure the sflow adapter port on the omnipeek server, but I get a error not allowing any changes.

I have used this exact same switch set up and server with other sflow products and they work fine. What am I missing...

Any help would greatly appreciated.

Since the sflow analyzer is not part of the core OmniPeek product, we suggest that you re submit this question to the Developers Section, thanks-

Please send me a sample trace file of your SFlow traffic. I will test, and if it is broken, I will fix it.

Hello Spacepacket,

i´ve got the same error.
I´m using OmniPeek 5.1.4 Enterprise and the Sflow-Analyzer Adapter.

I dont see any packets and i cant tune the options of the adapter.
I´ve got an internal error from omnipeek.

The sender is an alcatel-switch and it sends of port udp 6363.

Would you please help me?

Thanks a lot.

Yes, I can help. Please send me a small trace file with SFlow data in it. With that, I will be able to fix the problem in the SFlow Adapter, and post a new version to MyPeek.
