NAM module configuration

Unanswered Question
May 27th, 2010

Hi all,  We have two Cisco 6509s one of which has a NAM module installed.  There is a SPAN session configured to monitor all traffic on the local 6509.  How do I configure the NAM / switch to capture data from the other 6509?

I have this problem too.

From my knowledge NAM modules only capture traffic on the machine where they are installed, so there is no way to "pull" traffic from other machines, neither that machines can "push"traffic to NAM (e.g. like with Netflow).

But something can be done with RSPAN. On the remote machine you can configure RSPAN to mirror the traffic to the machine where NAM is installed and then it's possible to capture traffic with NAM.
