What functions on S series switches can analyze source and destination IP addresses in data packets

18

NetStream and sFlow supported by S series switches (except S1700 switches) can analyze information about network flows, such as source and destination IP addresses, port numbers, and interfaces in data packets.

Other related questions:
Can an S series switches forward a packet if both the source and destination IP addresses of the packet are multicast addresses
The S5710-C-LI or S5700SI drops packets whose source and destination IP addresses are both multicast addresses. Other switches broadcast such packets in a VLAN.

How to display the source and destination addresses of forwarded packets on S series switches
For S series switches (except the S1700), no command is available to display the source or destination addresses of the forwarded packets. If you want to obtain the addresses, use a tool to capture packets.

ACL based on source MAC addresses and destination IP addresses on S series switches
S series switches (except S1700 switches) do not support ACL based on source MAC addresses and destination IP addresses. If only the source MAC address and destination MAC address need to be specified, you can configure a Layer 2 ACL whose number ranges from 4000 to 4999. If only the source IP address and destination IP address need to be specified, you can configure an advanced ACL whose number ranges from 3000 to 3999.

Can an S series switch respond to Request packets with broadcast destination addresses
An S series switch can respond to ping requests with broadcast destination addresses. The icmp broadcast-address echo enable command enables a switch to respond to ICMP Echo Request packets with broadcast destination addresses. The undo icmp broadcast-address echo enable command disables a switch from responding to ICMP Echo Request packets with broadcast destination addresses. By default, the function of responding to ICMP Echo Request packets with broadcast destination addresses is enabled.
