I just installed the demo of Orion and Netflow. I must say I'm realy excited about the software and stunned about the results already.
Now my question is how to enable netflow on a Procurve 2610 switch. I was using HP Procurve manager first and when giving a show sflow destination the result was that sflow was enabled and data send to my procurve manager server. I now disabled the switch in Procurve manager and sflow status is disabled now. I have added the switch in Orion and Netflow module, but this doesn't activate the sflow to my Orion server. Any idea's how this works? On my Procurve 5600 switches I can use the CLI and this is working already.
For a HP Procurve 2610 sflow needs to be enabled. You do this by modifying mib variables.
Red items are variables you need to change. Notes on Red Items below
The following needs to be run in config mode
setmib sFlowRcvrAddress.1 -o c0a80001
setmib sFlowRcvrPort.1 -i 2055
setmib sFlowRcvrOwner.1 -D OwnerName sFlowRcvrTimeout.1 -i 214748364
setmib sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1 -i 37
setmib sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1 -i 37
setmib sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1 -i 37
setmib sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1 -i 37
setmib sFlowFsReceiver.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1 -i 1
setmib sFlowFsReceiver.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1 -i 1
setmib sFlowFsReceiver.22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.1 -i 1
setmib sFlowFsReceiver.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1 -i 1
sFlowRcvrAddress is the hex IP address for the NetFlow Server.
sFlowRcvrPort is the port that Netflow is received on on the NetFlow server. Note: 2055 is default.
sFlowRcvrOwner is the owner tag in show sflow destination as far as I can tell it is simply descriptive.
sFlowRcvrTimeout is the amount of time to transmit sflow data to the destination. sflow will stop after this timer runs out. 214748364 = ~6.8 years.
The numbers highlighted in the mib variable strings are the ports that the variables are set on.
sFlowFsPacketSamplingRate is the packet sampling rate the faster the sampling the more accurate the data (and likely the slower the packet transfer from the overhead).
sFlowFsReceiver is the sflow enable bit.
