    Configuring Port Mirroring for CTP Bundles (CTP Menu)

    Port mirroring enables you to mirror traffic to a third port. The packet generated from the source is sent to an assigned destination and to another port whether it is on the local node or remote node.

    Bundles using port mirroring must have the direct drive disabled. When a bundle configuration that has a port mirroring component is submitted, the CTPView software enforces the direct drive rule when the node is configured to the new settings.

    Note: To view and configure port mirroring parameters, you must login as an administrator.

    You can configure source and destination port mirroring for a CTP device from CTPView.

    To configure source and destination port mirroring for CTP bundles from the CTP Menu:

    1. From the Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations > 1) CTP.
    2. Select a bundle from the list.
    3. Select 2) Config> 11) Advanced Options> 10) Unidirectional circuit and configure the parameters as described in Table 1.
