Configuring IP Source Trail

Configuring IP Source Trail


When a user host is attacked, you can configure IP Source Trail on the device to which the host connects. IP Source Trail helps you determine the attack source and respond accordingly.

In Figure 12-13, when volume of traffic on Host_3 with IP address is abnormal, configure IP Source Trail on the switch to trace the traffic destined for Host_3 from the intranet and extranet. After the attack source is located, you can take measures such as configuring an ACL to deny attack traffic.

Figure 12-13  IP Source Trail networking
  • IP Source Trail conflicts with NetStream. Therefore, do not configure them simultaneously.
  • For S7700&S9700 series switches, only B series cards, E series cards (except EH1D2X48SEC0), and X series cards support IP Source Trail.


  1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
  2. Run the ip source-trail ip-address ip-address command to configure IP Source Trail based on destination addresses.

    By default, IP Source Trail is disabled.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display ip source-trail [ ip-address ip-address [ slot slot-id | verbose ] ] command to view IP Source Trail statistics.

<HUAWEI> display ip source-trail ip-address
 Destination Address:   
   SrcAddr         SrcIF      Bytes      Pkts       Bits/s     Pkts/s 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------------        GE3/0/1    14.785M    10.577K    204.601K   18        GE3/0/1    85.971M    60.234K    1.356M     121

The preceding command output shows that the host with IP address has sent a large number of packets, indicating that this host is the attack source. You can then configure an ACL on the switch to discard the packets sent from host to host
