SFlow version upgrade

Greetings - I'm trying to capture sflow data from a FastIron SuperX with Orion by Solarwinds which apparently requires sflow version 5 or higher. The SuperX delivers SFlow version 2 datagrams. How does one upgrade the sflow version being delivered, or does someone know of a product that can work with the version 2 sflow?

Thank you.

Re: SFlow version upgrade

SFlowTrend is a free graphical sFlow analyzer that supports sFlow v2,4,5. There is a list of products supporting sFlow on sFlow.org, but it is not clear which ones support sFlow v2.

Re: SFlow version upgrade

sFlow version 5 is supported in code release 5.1 for Fastiron SuperX

see the below from the 5.1 release notes

Feature Description See details in...

sFlow version 5 sFlow version 5 modifies and enhances the

format of the data sent to the sFlow collector.
