MCLAG is a control plane function.
Sflow on devices that don't generate it in a distributed fashion is done but punting sampled packets to the control-plane for classification by an sflow agent. Sample rate is therefore contingent on adequate CPU and control-plane bandwidth.
The greyhound switch SOC may be hampered by the amount of CPU available locally, but the 2MB packet buffer also is probably cause for caution.
