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.
