Port Mirroring and flow analyzer for CRS326

Thu Jul 25, 2019 8:59 am

I need to install packet flow analyzer for a CRS switch. Packet flow analyzer should receive mirrored flow from all ports/VLANs connected to CRS.
I have 3 VLANs here (2,3,4):
2: ports 1-9
3: ports 11-14
4: ports 15-20

/ip address
add address= interface=vlan-mng network=
So my questions are:
a) Is it possible to mirror flow from all VLANs to ONE selected port (let's say ether10) in such way that it will work like VLAN trunk port with packets mirrored from all ports connected to specific VLAN (all pacekts should be ofcourse VLAN tagged)
Packet Analyzer <-> ether10 <-> all mirrored flow, if yes how to achieve this in config above?
b) If a) is not possible or has great impact on performance (CPU usage) is it possible to mirror all ports belonging to one VLAN to one specific port belonging to this VLAN, I mean for example:
all ports from VLAN 2 -> mirror to ether10
all ports from VLAN 3 -> mirror to ether14
all ports from VLAN 4 -> mirror to ether20

Another question is if mirrored port (target) should belong specific VLAN also, I mean like ether14 and ether20 in configuration above?

How to achieve best a) and/or b) in configuration above ?
