How is ERSPAN used for troubleshooting?

  • to capture network traffic on a remote switch and send a copy of it to the local switch through Layer 2 toward a local port attached to a traffic analyzer
  • to capture network traffic on a switch port and send it to a VLAN
  • to capture network traffic on a remote device and send it to the local system through Layer 3 toward a local port attached to a traffic analyzer
  • to capture local network traffic on a switch and send a copy of it to a local port attached to a traffic analyzer

Explanation: Catalyst switches provide the Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN), which makes it possible to capture packets by using the following techniques:

  • Local Switched Port Analyzer. Local network traffic is captured on a switch and a copy of it is sent to a local port attached to a traffic analyzer.
  • Remote Switched Port Analyzer (RSPAN). Network traffic is captured on a remote switch and a copy of it is sent to the local switch through Layer 2 (switching) toward a local port attached to a traffic analyzer.
  • Encapsulated Remote Switched Port Analyzer (ERSPAN). Network traffic is captured on a remote device and it is sent to the local system through Layer 3 (routing) toward a local port attached to a traffic analyzer.
