I have been asked to get some network utilization numbers. I have a copy of Etherpeek network analyzer, to quote their manual:
"Typically, switch vendors offer a monitoring port as standard issue on their devices to allow a network or protocol analyzer to be connect to the switch. The monitoring port receives or mirrors all traffic to and from one or more stantdard ports on the same switch."
Does the 6509 offer such a feature? If not what is the best way to get a percentage number for network utilization.
Great. How do I do this? I will be spanning only one VLAN? Are there any gotcha's? like overloading the port etc.? Is there a rule of thumb threshold number to be sure I don't overload the port? I know, I know, lots of questions and no answers, story of my life :) Thanks much
SPAN doesn't cause a performance hit on the 6500 series. You may overload the SPAN destination port if the aggregate amount of traffic you're SPAN'ing is greater than the port's capacity, but the only consequence is dropped SPAN packets.
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
