Does anyone has come across the scenario where your sniffer server is at different location than you Cisco switch. In order to monitor certain switch ports, you put a pair of media converters(UTP to fiber) between the Cisco switch and sniffer server and put the port plug in media converter as port mirroring destination port. At the remote site, does sniffer manage to capture the packets through media converter? I know that certain time you use rspan to achieve this, but I would like to explore whether we can use media converter to do this. Thanks in advance.
I have not done this for a span specifically, but there is no reason it would not work. A media converter is essentially a layer 1 bridge with segments using different physical media. It is transparent to other network devices in all cases, including in the case of span. I guess I could see one benefit to doing it this way would be that you would keep your span traffic out of band while RSPAN and ERSPAN both send span streams in-band.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
