BD-X8 generating below mentioned error message in logs when sFlow is enabled
11/05/2015 05:25:00.14 <Warn:sflow.sample.RecvSmplErr> MM-A: Failed to extract sample. Sample size 64 Bundle Size 3016 Sample num 1411/05/2015 05:25:00.14 <Warn:sflow.debug.RecvMsgInv> MM-A: Sample message with invalid slot id received. Garbage message number 6302
The SFLOW sampling fails/not working for all packets that are lifted/forwarded to CPU. Apart from that, there should not be any service impact. Currently there is no work-around for this issue.
Our lab tests confirmed with couple of traffic (multicast packets (188.8.131.52) and packets destined to switch MAC) and found that the sampling has failed.
Reported error messages indicate that the sampling fails since the sflow process has received an invalid sample (garbage value) from the kernel.
