Issue/Introduction

Description:

After configuring Alcatel devices to send sFlow to ReporterAnalyzer no devices are appearing in ReporterAnaylzer

Example Config:
sflow receiver 1
name vnoc-sflow-reportanalyzer
address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
udp-port 9995
version 5
sflow sampler 1 port 1/1 receiver 1
sflow sampler 1 port 1/2 receiver 1
sflow poller 1 port 1/1 receiver 1 interval 5
sflow poller 1 port 1/2 receiver 1 interval 5

Solution:

The sflow sampler config lines as written above have sampling rate disabled because the default value is 0 if no sampling rate stated, and the Alcatel CLIguide (http://enterprise.alcatel-lucent.com/docs/?id=20532) states 0 disables sampling.

Changed to:
sflow receiver 1
name vnoc-sflow-reportanalyzer
address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
udp-port 9995
version 5
sflow sampler 1 port 1/1 receiver 1 rate 1000
sflow sampler 1 port 1/2 receiver 1 rate 1000
sflow poller 1 port 1/1 receiver 1 interval 5
sflow poller 1 port 1/2 receiver 1 interval 5

Adding a sampling rate of 1000 in the sflow sampler lines now has sflow data showing up in Report Analyzer.
