SPAN Configuration in 3750

I have configured SPAN in cisco 3750 switch as below mentioned. but the destination port protocol is down. Please help on this.

switch(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitethernet1/0/1
switch(config)#monitor session 1 destination interface gigabitethernet1/0/11 ingress vlan 1
Thanks,
Karthik

SPAN Configuration in 3750

Hi Karth,

There are a few points you have to take into consideration when configuring SPAN (2 are important here for u):

1. The destination port CANNOT be a source port; a source port CANNOT be a destination port.

2. You can configure a disabled port to be a source or destination port, but the SPAN function does not start until the destination port and at least one source port is enabled.

plz Rate if it helped.

Hope it Helps!

Looks like a typo, did you use the same port for source and destination (G1/0/1)?

Re: SPAN Configuration in 3750

Hi Sorou,

Thanks for your response.

By mistake i have mentioned the destination port. Now i have changed the destination port as below i mentioned. but still i am facing the same issue.

switch(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitethernet1/0/1
switch(config)#monitor session 1 destination interface gigabitethernet1/0/11 
ingress vlan 1

Thanks,

Hi Karth,

lets reset your interface to default and see if it works.

(config_int)# default interface gi1/0/11

remove ther keywork ingress vlan 1 (keep it simple first), if didnt work, try another interface as destination, see if it works.

Re: SPAN Configuration in 3750

     That is the normal output when configured as a span port , it is fine.   As long as it says monitoring it is fine. Also the 5 minute input and output shows it passing traffic.  From a cisco span doc.

SPAN Destination Port Up/Down

When ports are spanned for monitoring, the port state shows as UP/DOWN.

When you configure a SPAN session to monitor the port, the  destination interface shows the state down (monitoring), by design. The  interface shows the port in this state in order to make it evident that  the port is currently not usable as a production port. The port as  up/down monitoring is normal.

Re: SPAN Configuration in 3750

Hi,

I have connected the websense network agent server in destination port. I want to monitor/control all the traffic which are coming from the source port, for that the destination port(monitored) should be up and forward state. Please suggest on this.

Thanks,

Karthik

Re: SPAN Configuration in 3750

It will still be Down(monitoring), below is the status of our port where the websense is connected

GigabitEthernet0/2 is up, line protocol is down (monitoring)
