sFlow-RT requires Java 1.7+. The following commands download, install and run the software:
wget http://www.inmon.com/products/sFlow-RT/sflow-rt.tar.gz tar -xvzf sflow-rt.tar.gz cd sflow-rt ./start.sh
Alternatively, the following command runs sFlow-RT in a Docker container (see sflow/sflow-rt for more options):
docker run -p 8008:8008 -p 6343:6343/udp sflow/sflow-rt
Use a web browser to connect to http://localhost:8008 to interact with the REST API.
The software is also available as RPM and DEB packages:
Package files are installed under the path /usr/local/sflow-rt/ and log files are directed to /usr/local/sflow-rt/log/sflow-rt-<N>.log
Note There are no access controls built into sFlow-RT. However, HTTP access can be restricted to the local host by setting the http.hostname property to 127.0.0.1 and a reverse proxy can then be used to secure remote access to the API. For example, the following Apache configuration settings make the interface accessible on port 80 under the path /sflow-rt/
<IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests off ProxyVia off ProxyPass /sflow-rt/ http://127.0.0.1:8008/ retry=0 timeout=5 ProxyPassReverse /sflow-rt/ http://127.0.0.1:8008/ <IfModule mod_headers.c> RequestHeader append X-Forwarded-Prefix "/sflow-rt/" </IfModule> </IfModule> <Location /sflow-rt/> # insert access policy </Location>
