Send traffic into network from mirrored destination port
Enabled Port Mirroring
Port mirroring target port will not pass unmirrored user traffic
Mirroring destination port does not support two-way traffic
Cannot access network when in Port Redirect "Destination Port"
'set port mirroring create'
"Destination port not correct"
The SecureStack family supports one mirroring instance of many-ports-to-one-port, wherein a single destination (monitor) port can monitor bi-directional traffic replicated from up to eight ethernet-linked source ports, with all ports being located anywhere in the stack. LAG ports (5531
) and their underlying physical ports cannot be mirrored.
Mirroring of discontiguous ports would be configured by issuing a separate command for each set of contiguous (adjacent) source ports, all with the same destination port referenced; for example:set port mirroring create fe.1.5-6 fe.1.48
set port mirroring create fe.1.8-10 fe.1.48
set port mirroring create fe.1.12 fe.1.48
set port mirroring create fe.1.45 fe.1.48
set port mirroring create fe.1.47 fe.1.48[/code]If the user attempts to configure all of these source ports in a single command containing a complex port string, error message "Invalid Port in [port-string]." will result.
After configuring a destination port, it may not be used for any other purpose. For instance, it is not possible to operate, over the network, a remote sniffer attached to that port.
If the user attempts to configure a second destination port, error message "Destination port not correct" will result.
As of C5 any, C3 f/w 1.01.01.0047+, C2 f/w 5.01.01.0047+, B5 any, B3 f/w 1.01.01.0047+, and B2 f/w 4.01.01.0047+; it is possible to use the SMON MIB for management (including configuration) of Port Mirroring. See release notes (for example, C2 f/w 5.01.01.0049
) for details.
