The sFlow operation design contains an unusual feature, in that the sFlow receiver command includes a timeout value, specified in seconds. From the Configuration Guide:
set sflow receiver
timeout - The time, in seconds, remaining before the receiver/Collector being configured and all associated samplers and pollers expire. The value can range from 0 to 4294967295 seconds.
Once the timer set by this command expires, the receiver/Collector and all the samplers and pollers associated with this Collector expire and are removed from the switch's configuration. In order to start sending sample data to the Collector again, the Collector must be reconfigured with a new timeout value and samplers and pollers must be configured again. Therefore, you should consider setting the timeout value to the largest value that is reasonable for your environment.
The timer value "
Functions as Designed (FAD).
Set the timer for the desired operational period. If operation is expected to be permanent, then set the timer sufficiently high so that effectively it will never count down to zero. An initial timer value of
