port mirroring

Post by resorte » 05 Sep 2008 13:59

someone know how many ports I can mirrored in a OS6850 stand-alone?
I read in the documentation that the switch support "N-to-1" port mirroring, where up 128 (OS6850/OS9000) source ports can be mirrored to a single destination port.

So, in one OS6850-P48 in stand-alone mode, I can mirrored 47 ports to a one port?

Regards!

Yes, you can. The over-subscription note by the previous poster still applies - if you mirror 4 GIG ports to 1 GIG port you have no issue, but you will lose traffic in case you send 4 Gig TRAFFIC to one port ... (Even though 9 gig ports to 1 XG port would be ok without loss)
