Port Mirroring is a feature used to send a copy of network packets to a network monitoring connection. Port mirroring sends traffic from one port to another without interfering because it has the ability to copy the traffic from a single port to a mirror port. This process is commonly used for network appliances that are required to monitor network traffic, and analyze and debug data or diagnose errors on a network. Port Mirroring on the RVS4000 helps monitor traffic destined to a particular port.
The objective of this document is to explain how to configure Port Mirroring on RVS4000.
