Mirroring Packets

You must enable port-mirroring on your switch. If you attempt to apply a policy that requires port-mirroring, the mirror action will be disabled until you enable the port-mirroring.

On the BlackDiamond X8 series switches, BlackDiamond 8000 c-, xl-, and xm-series modules and Summit X460, X480, X670, X450G2, X460G2, X670G2 and X770 series switches, mirroring can be configured on the same port as egress ACLs. Mirroring can send packets to port x and you can install your rule at egress port x, and the rule should match your mirrored traffic.
