Question about ERSPAN


Does ADA/MTP read or support ERSPAN traffic?
Meaning, does ADA/MTP read encapsulated traffic directly?




NO, not at the current time.
ERSPAN traffic is encapsulated or encoded-Riverbed traffic and ADA/MTP does not decapsulate traffic.
ADA/MTP can however read the traffic if unpacked or decapsulated before it’s sent to the monitor.
Meaning, you will have to terminate the ERSPAN on a local switch to present normal SPAN
traffic at a local switch to decapsulate before feeding the monitor.

Additional Information:

Reference Case #00526260
Currently, decapsulating traffic is not on the road map for ADA/MTP.
