I have an issue with spanning a port on the switch. Please assist.
I have a switch of 4510R-E series with port 8/47 providing MAN lin kconnectivity to another office. I see the tx or rx load on the interface to be hitting 250 every 1 min or so. I would want to trace the traffic on this link. So, I thoght of spanning the traffic onto a system & analyze. th eport 8/47 is on VLAN 250. I configured the below:
monitor session 2 source vlan 250
monitor session 2 destination interface fa 8/11
I have my local system connected to fa 8/11 on the same switch. When I configure the span this way, I lose connectivity to the system on 8/11. The moment I remove the configurtaion, I am able to ping to the system & access the system. Why is this so?
How do I proceed with this ?
