MAC Address Mirroring

MAC Address Mirroring

MAC address mirroring copies traffic with a specified source or destination MAC address in a specified VLAN to an observing port. MAC address mirroring is a more accurate mirroring mode, allowing you to monitor packets of a specified device for analysis. In Figure 8-5, the switch copies only the packets sent from HostA to the monitoring device.

Similar to port mirroring, traffic mirroring is classified into local traffic mirroring and Layer 2 remote traffic mirroring depending on the observing port type.

Be aware of the following:
  • The switch supports only inbound MAC address mirroring. That is, the switch can copy only the packets with a specified source or destination MAC address and are received in a specified VLAN to observing ports.
  • In Layer 2 remote MAC address mirroring, the VLAN to which the original traffic belongs must be different from the Layer 2 remote mirroring VLAN used on the intermediate Layer 2 network to forward mirrored traffic.
