In-band Traffic Mirroring
- Fabric links are used for carrying
mirrored and tenant traffic. Mirrored traffic needs to be encapsulated in ERSPAN
headers to support multiple sessions.
- Separate tunnels are created over
fabric links between the ingress leaf switch and either egress leaf switch or
directly to the sink.
- Sink can be deployed in computes, in
separate stand-alone servers, or outside the datacenter.
- No separate ports or devices are
required for mirroring.
