ACE 4700 platform

Unanswered Question
Oct 6th, 2008

From what I can see, the OS is Linux:

kernel=(hd0,1)/c4710ace-mz.A1_7b.bin ro root=LABEL=/ auto console=ttyS0,9600n8

quiet bigphysarea=32768

[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0xa8bb3c7]

If so, is it possible to run "tcpdump" on

this box?

One of the thing I like about F5 BigIP

is the ability to run tcpdump on it.

It makes troubleshooting so much easier.

Is tcpdump available on ACE? Thanks.

I have this problem too.

This platform has multiplie CPU.

The one you see is the management CPU.

So, yes we can run tcpdump, but you will only catch probes, telnet/ssh traffic to the device.

The production traffic is handled by another cpu.

Can I run tcpdump on other virtual context?

I come from F5 BigIP environment. Therefore,

I like tcpdump.

Is it possible?

Thank you Gilles
