Nexus 3548 Port Mirror With ACL Latency

Hi there,

On my Nexus 3548 switch, I'm wanting to create a filtered SPAN session to port mirror only UDP data from one Ethernet port to another:

switch(config)# ip access-list acl-udp-only
switch(config-acl)# permit udp any any
switch(config-acl)# exit
switch(config)# monitor session 1
switch(config-monitor)# source interface ethernet 1/1 both
switch(config-monitor)# destination interface ethernet 1/10
switch(config-monitor)# filter ip access-group acl-udp-only
switch(config-monitor)# exit

As this data is latency-sensitive, I'm interested in understanding the latency cost of such filtered port mirroring:

  • Compared to unfiltered port mirroring, does adding an ACL rule to filter packet data increase the switch's port mirroring latency?
  • Under "normal mode", what would the expected latency be for this filtered port mirroring?
  • Can this filtered port mirroring also be performed under "warp mode"? If so, by how much would the expected latency be reduced?

Thanks,

David

The session is missing an important command: no shut MY SAMPLE: ============================== interface Ethernet1/42 description Link-to-XXX switchport monitor no shutdown monitor session 1 source interface Ethernet1/43 both destination interface Ethernet1/42 no shut
