jsFlow 0.1 Released (DE-CIX)
jsFlow is a Java library for sFlow v5. Currently, it supports all headers that are supported by Force10 E-1200 switches. Force10 E-1200 switches support only a sub-set of the headers that are specified in the sFlow specification. So, if you want use the jsFlow library with any other device than a Force10 E-1200 switch it might be the case that jsFlow does not support all headers coming from your device. However, as jsFlow is designed to be extensible it should be easy to add missing headers.

jSflow is released under the GPLv2 and can be downloaded here. As I have been implementing jsFlow for a internal project at DE-CIX I am happy that the management of DE-CIX supported my wish to open-source jsFlow. The current version of jsFlow is 0.1 indicating that a lot of work has to be done in order to get a full-fledged sFlow library. So, please feel to contribute to jsFlow. I will be happily accept patches that fix a bug or add new features!

Best regards,
