How to mirror a port on a Brocade Switch?

Postby admin » Mon Apr 29, 2013 2:05 pm

This is how you can mirror a port on a Brocade switch. This was tested on an MLX, it may be a little different on your platform.

Global Config
mirror ethernet <slot/port> --> This is the port to connect your Laptop top to

Interface configuration mode
interface ethernet <slot/port> --> This is the port you want the data from
monitor eth <slot/port> both|input|output
<slot/port> Here is your Mirror port



To view configured monitor/mirror ports issue the following command. In this example, port 16/6 is the port we are monitoring (we want data from this port) and we are sending the data to port 14/27.

Brocade-MLXe-Switch#show monitor config
Monitored Port 16/6
Input traffic mirrored to: 14/27
Output traffic mirrored to: 14/27

Return to Brocade
