When configuring contract subject for PBR, I came across the different EtherTypes supported by a filter:
- IP (I assume both IPv4 and IPv6)? - IPv4 - IPv6 - ARP - TRILL (not used in our DC) - FCOE (not used in our DC) - MACSEC (not used in our DC) - MPLS Unicast (not used in our DC) - And then there's Unspecified, which I assume it's all of the above (and no other EtherTypes)?
Is there any purpose for an ARP filter for inter-EPG contract, when I am implementing ACI in network-centric deployment where 1 BD = 1 EPG = 1 VLAN (and 1 subnet per BD)?
Assuming our applications only use ICMP, TCP and UDP, would an IP filter suffice for all inter-EPG contract? Is ARP filter just there for when I want to implement multiple EPGs associated to the same BD (still 1 subnet) and create contracts between them?
