The sFlow technology is a good fit for any device that performs a
packet forwarding function (including routers) and the sFlow.org web
site maintains a list of switches and routers that implement the
technology,

However, you are correct that today sFlow is more broadly implemented
in switching platforms than routing platforms, but I expect this will
change as network speeds increase and platforms converge.
