Re: VLAN-Based SPAN

Hi

What do you mean?

Are you talking about SPAN (mirrored) port?

Please explain a little more.

What Catalyst model are you using?

Re: VLAN-Based SPAN

Hi again:

Ingress/Egress SPAN

In the example in the section Monitor VLANs with SPAN, traffic that enters and leaves the specified ports is monitored. The field Direction: transmit/receive shows this. The Catalyst 4500/4000, 5500/5000, and 6500/6000 series switches allow you to collect only egress (outbound) or only ingress (inbound) traffic on a particular port. Add the keyword rx (receive) or tx (transmit) to the end of the command. The default value is both (tx and rx).

set span source_port destination_port [rx | tx | both]

Have you defined only rx keyword?

I hope this help. Please rate if it does.

Best regards

Re: VLAN-Based SPAN

hi,

yes, in the configuration for vlan monitoring i can only monitor rx traffic, why again?. an other solution is monitoring the source gigabitinterfaces...on this way i can only 1 interface take for rx and tx (both) monitoring, but i have 8 gigabitinterface for monitoring...the cisco 3550-12G plattform dosent support more sourceports.
