Greetings. I wonder if it could be explained how sFlow could help Tier1/Tier3 providers to optimise network traffic, if specific physical channels (FC) could be used for specific types of traffic. I mean: if MQ traffic could be routed threw one set of channels, streams (audio and/or video) could be routed threw other set of physical channels and unstructured text data related IP packets would be routed threw third set of channels.

I guess sFlow could help to collect data about correlation of packet exchange, priority switching efficiency, load metrics (direct or indirect).

Regards

You are correct, sFlow provides visibility into the types of traffic and the paths that the traffic takes across the physical network. 

The following article provides some references related to traffic engineering using sFlow:
