Local port monitoring

In local port monitoring, the source port and the network analyzer port that analyses the mirror traffic reside on the same interconnect module. Only the available ports are listed in the Network analyzer port drop-down list. To configure a network analyzer port, use either an unused uplink port or a physical downlink port.

In an interconnect module, you can create only one local port monitoring session.

HPE Virtual Connect 16Gb 24-Port Fibre Channel Module:
  • You cannot use Virtual Connect to forward captured traffic to a server.
  • You can configure one network analyzer port (the uplink port) with up to 16 downlink server ports within a logical interconnect.
