Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Discarded Packet Capture

Licensing Requirements and Limitations for Discarded Packet Capture

Involved Network Elements

A collector is used together.

Licensing Requirements

The discarded packet capture function is controlled by a license. By default, this function is disabled on a new switch. To use the discarded packet capture function, apply for and purchase the license from the equipment supplier.

Version Requirements

Table 12-1 Products and minimum version supporting discarded packet capture

Product Model

Minimum Version Required









Feature Limitations

  • The switch sends the captured discarded packets to the CPU. The maximum rate for sending discarded packets to the CPU is 1000 pps. Therefore, this function is applicable to networks with a few packets discarded. If a great number of packets are discarded on a network, this function cannot capture all the discarded packets.

  • Only the first 80 bytes of captured discarded packets can be saved and analyzed.
  • If the captured discarded packets are IPv6 packets, the packet statistics cannot be reported through the GRPC interface.
  • For packets discarded due to congestion, the switch can capture only known unicast packets.

  • In a VXLAN scenario, the discarded packet capture function is configured on the device. If congestion occurs on a VXLAN service access interface or VXLAN tunnel interface, the captured packets are discarded. Table 12-2 lists the type of packets captured on the VXLAN service access interface and VXLAN tunnel interface.

    As shown in Figure 12-2, 10GE1/0/2 interfaces on Device1 and Device3 are VXLAN service access interfaces, and 10GE1/0/1 interfaces on Device1 and Device2 are VXLAN tunnel interfaces.
