Edit Port Mirroring

Table of contents of this topic

In Port Mirroring, the entire traffic that arrives at a port is mirrored onto a mirror port of the MA Network Switch. 

It is most commonly used in debugging or for the analysis of the network traffic such as the network load. 

The MA Network Switch mirrors several source ports to one destination port. Vice versa, it is possible to set a single destination port at a time. 

Use the Web Interface


  1. Click Tools / Edit General Settings
  2. Click Edit Port Mirroring
  3. The editor opens.
Edit port mirroring
  1. To select a destination port, click the corresponding port in the upper column of the editor. 
  2. Select the source ports:
    -Click the corresponding ports in the lower column of the editor. 
  3. Click Apply settings and stay where your are or Apply settings and leave edit

Settings have been adjusted and are saved in the startup configuration. 

A port is never destination and source at the same time.
