Q&A - Where are the VLAN tags in Port mirroring on SDX / AMSE

Version 3

    Question:

    Where are the VLAN tags in Port mirroring on AMSE

     

    Answer:

    VLAN tags are not provided on the destination port of an AMSE switch ( different than AOS ).

    Therefore all packets captured on the destination port are from all VLAN's mirrored from source ports.

    To determine which VLAN a packet was captured from use the source MAC address ( ex: 8c:dc:d4:2c:5b:36 ) .

     

    SDX# sh mac add add ?

        <mac_addr>    48 bit MAC address: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

    SDX# sh mac add add 8c:dc:d4:2c:5b:36

    Type    VID  MAC Address       Ports

    Dynamic 1    8c:dc:d4:2c:5b:36 GigabitEthernet 1/10

    SDX#

     

    This shows it was from VLAN 1 on Gig 1/10.
