                              nginx-sflow-module
                              ==================

  A binary, random-sampling nginx module designed for:
       lightweight,
        centralized,
         continuous,
          real-time monitoring of very large and very busy web farms.

Installation
============
	First download the nginx sources,  then tell the "./configure" script
	that you want to add this module:

        ./configure ... --add-module=/absolute/path/to/nginx-sflow-module
        make
        make install

Configuration
=============
	The module picks up it's sFlow config from the file /etc/hsflowd.auto,
	so the easiest way to configure it is to install that daemon:

	http://host-sflow.sourceforge.net

	Alternatively,  you could type something like this into /etc/hsflowd.auto:

rev_start=1
sampling=100
header=128
polling=10
agentIP=<ip-address>
collector=127.0.0.1 6343
rev_end=1

Where <ip-address> is the local IP address that best represents this host.

Output
======

  The sFlow output goes to a UDP port on your sFlow collector host.
  There you can examine it using a number of tools,  including the
  freeware "sflowtool", which can be downloaded as source code from:
  
  http://www.inmon.com/technology/sflowTools.php

  For example, to log all the fields in ASCII:
 
  $ sflowtool

  Or to log the HTTP samples in common-log-file format:

  $ sflowtool -H


Example output from sflowtool:
