Common Mirroring Operations : Configuring an Observing Port

A physical port must be configured as an observing port before the mirroring function is configured. You can configure a single observing port or multiple observing ports in a batch. Observing ports configured in a batch are added to an observing port group. After a mirrored port is configured, the mirrored port is bound to the observing port group. Therefore, such batch configuration is usually performed in 1:N mirroring to simplify the configuration.

Configuring a Single Observing Port

  • Configure a local observing port, which directly connects to a monitoring device.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] observe-port 1 interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1
  • Configure a Layer 2 remote observing port, which forwards mirroring packets to a monitoring device across a Layer 2 network.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] observe-port 1 interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1 vlan 10
  • Configure a Layer 3 remote observing port, which forwards mirroring packets to a monitoring device across a Layer 3 network. (Only S7700/S9700 support the configuration of a Layer 3 remote observing port.)

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] observe-port 1 interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1 destination-ip 10.1.1.1 source-ip 10.2.2.2

Configure Observing Ports in a Batch (only in V200R005 and Later Versions)

  • Configure local observing ports in a batch, which directly connect to monitoring devices.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] observe-port 1 interface-range gigabitethernet 1/0/1 to gigabitEthernet 1/0/3
  • Configure Layer 2 remote observing ports, which forward mirroring packets to monitoring devices across a Layer 2 network.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] observe-port 1 interface-range gigabitethernet 1/0/1 to gigabitEthernet 1/0/3 vlan 10
  • Layer 3 remote observing ports cannot be configured in a batch.
