Traffic selection options

To configure traffic mirroring, specify the source interface, traffic direction, and criteria to be used to select the traffic to be mirrored by using the following options:

  • Interface type
    • Port, trunk, and/or mesh

    • VLAN

    • Switch (global configuration level)

  • Traffic direction and selection criteria
    • All inbound and/or outbound traffic on a port or VLAN interface

    • Only inbound IP traffic selected with an ACL (deprecated in software release K.14.01 and greater)

    • Only inbound IPv4 or IPv6 traffic selected with a classifier-based mirroring policy

    • All inbound and/or outbound traffic selected by MAC source and/or destination address

The different ways to configure traffic-selection criteria on a monitored interface are described in the following sections.
