Example for Configuring Port Mirroring

Example for Configuring Port Mirroring

This section provides an example of how to configure VLAN port mirroring.

Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 14-3, SwitchA forwards user packets from VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 to Device B. To monitor VLAN 10's user packets that are forwarded to Device B through interface2, configure Device B's interface1 as an observing port. Then, configure port mirroring on interface2 to copy all user packets received on interface2 to interface1. Finally, use HostD to analyze the user packets received on interface1.

Figure 14-3 Port mirroring
  • The configurations in this example are performed on Device B and Device C. HUAWEI NE20E-S2 can function as Device B and Device C.
  • Interface1, interface2, and Interface3 in this example are GE 0/1/0, 0/3/0, and 0/3/1, respectively.

Do not configure an interface as both an observing port and a mirroring port.

Configuration Roadmap

The configuration roadmap is as follows:

  1. Configure Device B's GE 0/1/0 as an observing port.

  2. Configure Device B's GE 0/3/0 as a mirroring port, and enable port mirroring.

Data Preparation

To complete the configuration, you need the following data:

  • Interface types and numbers for an observing port and a mirroring port


  1. Configure router interface IP addresses and ensure route reachability.
  2. Configure GE 0/1/0 as an observing port.

    <DeviceB> system-view
    [~DeviceB] interface gigabitethernet0/1/0
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/1/0] port-observing observe-index 1
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/1/0] commit
    [~DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/1/0] quit

  3. Configure GE 0/3/0 as a mirroring port, and enable inbound traffic mirroring for VLAN 10.

    [~DeviceB] vlan 10
    [*DeviceB-vlan10] commit
    [~DeviceB-vlan10] quit
    [~DeviceB] interface gigabitethernet0/3/0
    [~DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] portswitch
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] port default vlan 10
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] port-mirroring inbound vlan 10
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] commit
    [~DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] quit

    After the preceding configurations are complete, VLAN 10's user packets received on GE 0/3/0 are mirrored to GE 0/1/0.

  4. Specify the observing port for GE 0/3/0.

    [~DeviceB] interface gigabitethernet0/3/0
    [~DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] port-mirroring to observe-index 1
    [*DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] commit
    [~DeviceB-GigabitEthernet0/3/0] quit

  5. Verify the configuration.

    To view traffic mirroring information, run the ping command or use other traffic generation methods. For example, you can send 10 ping packets from SwitchA to Device B's GE 0/3/0 and check whether all the 10 ping packets are received on HostD.

    Check GE 0/1/0 information on Device B.
