Re: Looking for sflow data

The example sFlow Agent Source Code includes a C program that will
generate sFlow v5 from a stream of packets read from libpcap (making
it effectively a rudimentary sFlow probe). The sources can be
downloaded from here:

This program has a "test mode" option that will throw in canned
examples of various optional structures, such as the BGP gateway
structure with the AS-Path. You can also adjust the sflow_api.h file
to have it generate the "expanded" variation of the flow-sample
format (just uncomment line 27).

This will be enough to simulate most implementations (the older v2/v4
format is increasingly rare). Just remember to make your decoder
skip over any structures whose tag you do not recognize.
