Core switch documentation
LANGuardian network monitoring software uses deep packet inspection to analyze the traffic flowing through the core switch on your network. LANGuardian acquires data from a monitoring port on the core switch (see the architecture page for details). The steps involved in setting up a monitoring (SPAN) port are different for every core switch. This page contains links to the manufacturers’ core switch documentation for commonly used switches.
If your switch is not listed on this page, or you need help configuring a monitoring port to send traffic to LANGuardian, please contact our support team and they will be happy to provide free, no-obligation assistance. This page on the Wireshark wiki is also a useful resource.
