Goal

This document explains how packet-trace (port mirroring) on the Session Director (SD) can be enabled.

Note: The packet-trace feature should be enabled only in a maintenance window or when the server is running with low traffic because it can affect performance. To minimize performance impact, limit the tracing only to the IP addresses that you are interested in.

This feature requires an external tracing server, which can be any host that is running a packet trace application such as tcpdump, wireshark, tshark etc.
