What is the purpose of ERSPAN?

  • to mirror traffic from a remote location
  • to log information from monitored network devices
  • to provide standardization for traffic sent from network devices to a logging server
  • to analyze the type and frequency of specific data types for QoS purposes

Explanation: Encapsulated Remote Switched Port Analyzer (ERSPAN) is used to route monitored traffic from one network to another through Layer 3 routing instead of Layer 2 port mirroring as other SPAN technologies do.
