I have an ex4200 juniper switch and from my understanding it supports jflow and sflow. What is the advantage to configure jflow over sflow? Should I configure jflow rather than sflow? Thanks

EX4200 supports sflow, please have a look at links below to enable/configure sflow:

SFLOW is a standard while JFLOW is a proprietary format, but I agree with dpk_wal the ex4200 only supports
sflow. Make sure you obtain collector tools that work with SFLOW.

Collector tools? I am using Scrutinizer from Plixer and Paesler as my 2 collectors.  Also, can sflow has several collectors? The reason I ask is because I see the existing sflow configuration already has a collector. Thx

Looks they both support SFLOW, yes you can specify more than one collector. Remember, depending on your sampling rate and device capabilities you need to watch out how many collectors you specify. If you only have two you should be fine, watch your CPU utilization. I am not sure how robust the EX4200 system CPU etc .. is .
