Configuring Port Mirroring for CTP Bundles (CTPView)


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 that use 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.


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


You cannot configure the destination port mirroring tail with a remote IP address that is the same as the IP address of the Source CTP.

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 CTPView:

  1. In the side pane, select Bundle > Configuration.
  2. Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
  3. In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to configure.
  4. Under Bundle Options, select Advanced Options Show and configure the parameters as described in Table 41.

    Table 41: Unidirectional and Bidirectional Circuit Options

    Select one:

    • Bi-directional—Select to configure both source ad destination port mirroring.

    • Source—Select to configure only source port mirroring.

    • Destination—Select to configure only destination port mirroring.

  5. Under Bundle Options, select Source Port Mirroring Show and the Destination Port Mirroring Show and configure the parameters as described in Table 42.
