I need to monitor 4 servers and 2 firewall/routers, what makes 8 seperate ports (SFP+, 10G each) for the server hosts and 2 LACP with 2x 10G SFP+ per LACP for the firewalls > so I need to monitor 12x 10G ports. These 12 ports are divided over 2x ICX 7650-48F switches that make 1 stack.
I see 20x egress monitored port but in the note I read 8. When I try to add a 9th port I get an error. I also tried to work with 2 different mirror ports (1 on each unit of the stack, because 2 on the same stack is not supported), but the limit of 8 ports is for both added. So I'm still unable to monitor more then 8 ports, the switch counts all ports together even when divided over 2 mirror ports).
Before we used the new Ruckus ICX7650 stack, the core switch was a HPE 5700 stack and I was able to make 2 mirrors with all these ports.
Are you encountering below error when you try adding 9th port with option "both"
ICX7650-48F Router(config-if-e10000-1/1/39)#monitor e 1/1/40 both Error - Tx Monitor port table is full. ICX7650-48F Router(config-if-e10000-1/1/39)#exit ICX7650-48F Router(config)#mirror-port e 1/1/30 Error - Inbound mirror port 1/1/40 is already active on this region. Error - Outbound mirror port 1/1/40 is already active on this region.
From what I see with Lab device i suppose you are hitting a limitation
For option "egress" and "both" for monitoring port maximum i see that we can enter 8 ports
7650 Switch can only have one port region hence you will only be able to configure 1 mirror port in the switch
For "Ingress" only we can add any number of ports for monitoring I don't see a limitation .
I hope this information helps. Please feel free to post if any concerns.
