    Hi, 

    Thinking of sflow configuration in our network (hp switches), but wanted to know few more information
    -should it be configured only on core switch or all the edge switches too ?
    -can we configure it vlan based and we can monitor the traffic in port of interest ?
    -At the destination computer (collector) which software we need to install such that it will display the collected information?


    Please share your experience.

    I think it is better to move the question around, and first find a solution that consumes sFlow. Without that, there it makes no sense to determine on which ports/vlans you want to enable sFlow. Then for some scenarios you need flow data from your edge switches, for others just from the core, for others from both or selected switches. May be best to work with your Aruba partner to find out what solutions they have in their portfolio.
