How to Trace Directly on Interfaces of OCSM Oracle Linux with DPDK Based Probe - Version 3.3 (Doc ID 2094590.1)

Last updated on JULY 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Session Monitor - Version 3.3.x to 3.3.x [Release 3.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How to trace directly on interfaces of OCSM Oracle Linux with DPDK based probe if needed for troubleshooting purposes.

In order to be able to do a direct capture on the Oracle Linux Probe, one must switch from DPDK to the MMPCAP sniffer type (network drivers) so usual tools for capturing (as tcpdump) can be used.

NOTE: This document does not apply to version 3.4.x - on 3.4.x you can uninstall dpdk as explained in the Installation Guide (section "Uninstalling DPDK"), reboot and then trace normally. After you are done tracing, install DPDK again as per Installation Guide
