We are implementing Solarwinds NTA and I'm trying to get sFlow working on my HP Procurve 4208vl switch.

I was able to enable sFlow by entering the following commands:

setmib sFlowRcvrAddress.1 -o 0A00020C  (10.0.2.12)
setmib sFlowRcvrOwner.1 -D sFlowowner sFlowRcvrTimeout.1 -i 100000000
setmib sFlowRcvrPort.1 -i 2055

After entering "walkmib ifName" to get the PVID mappings - I entered these command to configure port C2:

setmib sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 1
setmib sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 512
setmib sFlowFsMaximumHeaderSize.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 128
setmib sFlowCpReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 1
setmib sFlowCpInterval.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 30

After any of these commands, the following message is returned:

sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1: Unable to create.

Can someone help me to get this working?



Useful Information:
Software revision  : L.10.23  
 ROM Version        : L.10.03

MASTER_SWITCH# walkmib 1.3.6.1.4.1.14706
sFlowVersion.0 = 1.3;HP;L.10.23
sFlowAgentAddressType.0 = 1
sFlowAgentAddress.0 = 0a 00  02 11
sFlowRcvrOwner.1 = sFlowowner
sFlowRcvrTimeout.1 = 99,946,298
sFlowRcvrMaximumDatagramSize.1 = 1400
sFlowRcvrAddressType.1 = 1
sFlowRcvrAddress.1 = 0a 00  02 0c

Try your commands spelled out MIBwise in the setmib.
Like this.

setmib 1.3.6.1.4.1.14706.1.1.6.1.3.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1 -i 1

Hi Rharland2009,

Okay. Just curious - if you do a getmib of that same string, do you get a result?

Odd, port C2 (ifname.54) results with "no such name" but a higher number port D22 (ifname.100), I received a return value of 0:

# getmib sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1
sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.54.1: No such name.

# getmib sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.100.1
sFlowFsReceiver.11.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1.100.1 = 0

Okay.
Try to configure your steps on the higher interface and post results.

I looked at our config and ports C1-C4 were part of a trunk group. After running the walkmib ifName command, and the very bottom I found:

...
...
ifName.209 = Trk1
...

Trk1 contains C1 - C4
I ran the commands above, and they worked.

Thanks very much Rharland2009 for your help!
