Redirecting Analytics to a Rear Facing NIC

This feature provides an option to copy analytics traffic to one of the rear facing NICs instead of the CPU. By redirecting analytics traffic to a dedicated port instead of the common CPU port, Netvisor One alleviates the load on the CPU port.

The analytics port is part of all VLANs and is removed from the flood map. When the connection-stats-setting is enabled to redirect analytics, Netvisor One receives information from the switch vPort database. There is no HA (High Availability) impact as this feature is local to the switch.

The following command specifies the target of analytics traffic on the supported switch:

CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > connection-stats-settings-modify redirect-analytics-vflow span3


The following command entered through the CLI returns to the default setting of redirecting the traffic to CPU:

CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > connection-stats-settings-modify redirect-analytics-vflow none
