SPAN configuration on switch 2950

Unanswered Question

Hi,

I had enabled span port on the CAT 2950 switch to capture some traffic flows from a specific source port. I had connected Packet Shaper to the destination port.


For the source port, I had enabled for both (tx and rx) traffics.


My Packet Shaper report only shows inbound traffic. There is very little traffic detected on the outbound.


For your information, I didn't configured for ingress traffic on the destination port. Can this be the problem ?


How to report correctly for both inbound and outbound on the Packet Shaper. The Packet Shaper is configured in watch mode.


Please help.

But there is outbound traffic being detected? What is connected to the monitored port? If a multi-homed host, perhaps it is sending the reply traffic out of a different interface.

Hi,

Here is the snapshot after configuring the span port:

Sorry, there is no traffic on the inbound.

The monitor port should only have outbound traffic as the probe is most likely not generating any traffic of its own on that port. My previous questions were about the port being monitored.

Hi,

Here is the configuration for span on the switch:


monitor session 1 source interface Fa0/6

monitor session 1 destination interface Fa0/3


The source interface fa0/6 belong to vlan 10 as below:


10 VLAN0010 active Fa0/3, Fa0/4, Fa0/6, Fa0/19, Fa0/20, Fa0/22



FastEthernet0/6 is up, line protocol is up (connected)

Hardware is Fast Ethernet, address is 000c.3087.e006 (bia 000c.3087.e006)
