Troubleshooting LACP

Overview This document aims at providing the basic steps to follow for troubleshooting LACP related issues. Introduction The Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), described by IEEE 802.3ad, defines a method for two devices to establish and maintain link aggregation groups (LAGs). When LACP is enabled, our switch can configure LACP-compatible ports into a LAG (also called a channel group). Initial Checks 1. Interface status of the bundled interfaces Check if the physical interfaces configured to be a part of the port-channel are connected using the command show interfaces status. For the port-channel to be up, at least one member interface...

Troubleshooting sFlow

Overview This document aims at providing the basic checks that can be performed for troubleshooting sFlow. Introduction Arista switches provide an sFlow agent that samples only ingress traffic from all Ethernet and port-channel interfaces. This agent combines the interface counters and flow samples into sFlow datagrams that are sent to a sFlow collector. A sFlow collector is a server that runs software which analyzes and reports network traffic. Arista switches do not include sFlow collector software. The switch sends sFlow datagrams to the collector located at an IP address specified by a global configuration command. If the collector destination is...
