Introduced : BIG-IP_v11.4.0
Sets the sFlow sampling rates for the specified HTTP profiles. This is the ratio of packets observed at the virtual servers to which the HTTP profile is assigned to the number of samples you want the BIG-IP system to generate. For example, a sampling rate of 2000 specifies that 1 sample will be randomly generated for every 2000 packets observed. You should set the sampling rates for the profiles when you want the traffic flowing through the virtual servers to be sampled at a rate that is different than the global sFlow sampling rate. Note: you will also need to set the sampling type to SFLOW_GLOBAL_NO (see set_sflow_sampling_rate_global). The default is 0 (zero).
