Solution
NOTE:
Some personal communication information may be collected or stored to detect transmission faults and errors. Huawei cannot collect or store user communication information without permission. It is recommended that relevant functions used to collect or store user communication information be enabled under applicable laws and regulations. During user communication information collection and storage, measures must be taken to protect user communication information.

The device supports the following two types of mirroring functions:
  • Port mirroring
A packet passing through a mirrored interface is copied and then sent to a specified monitoring device for analysis and monitoring. All packets passing through the mirrored interface are copied.
  • Flow mirroring
A packet passing through a mirrored interface and matching a traffic classification rule is copied and then sent to a specified monitoring device for analysis and monitoring. A traffic policy matching flow mirroring is applied to the mirroring interface, and packets matching traffic classification rules on the mirrored interface are copied.

NOTE:
The device does not provide packet parsing, and packet capture software is required to parse packets.
