How many ports can mirror traffic to one observing port

24

AR series routers allow multiple ports to mirror traffic to one observing port. There is no limit to the number of ports. The traffic mirrored to the observing port, however, cannot exceed the maximum forwarding traffic of the observing port, namely, maximum bandwidth of the observing port.

Can packets on multiple interfaces be mirrored to one observing port on AR routers and how many interfaces can be mirrored
Multiple interfaces can be mirrored to one observing port on AR routers. There is no limit for the number of interfaces that can be mirrored to one observing port. You need to consider whether actual traffic of the observing port is larger than its forwarding capacity, that is, whether the actual traffic is larger than the maximum bandwidth of the observing port.

Can a physical port on an S series switch be configured as a mirrored port and an observing port simultaneously
For S series switches (except S1700 switches), a port on the following switch models or cards cannot be configured as an observing port and a mirrored port simultaneously: - Modular switches: X series cards - Fixed switches: S5720HI Note: A port on the following switches cannot be configured as an observing port and a mirrored port simultaneously: S1720GFR, S1720GW-E, S1720GWR-E, S2720EI, S2750EI, S5700LI, S5700S-LI, S5710-C-LI, S5710-X-LI, S5700SI, S5720LI, S5720S-LI, S5720SI, S5720S-SI, and S600-E.

Can an interface be configured as a mirrored port and an observing port at the same time
An interface cannot be configured as a mirroring port and an observing port at the same time. This is because the mirroring port and the observing port are exclusive.
