Create a Tunnel Endpoint

Traffic from the V Series node is distributed to tunnel endpoints in a monitoring session. A tunnel endpoint can be created using a standard L2 Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnel or a Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) tunnel.

To create a new tunnel endpoint:

  1. After creating a new monitoring session, or click Edit on an existing monitoring session, the GigaVUE-FM canvas appears.

  2. In the canvas, select New > New Tunnel, drag and drop a new tunnel template to the workspace. The Add Tunnel Spec quick view appears.
  3. On the New Tunnel quick view, enter or select the required information as described in the following table.




    The name of the tunnel endpoint.

    Note:  Do not enter spaces in the alias name.


    The description of the tunnel endpoint.


    The type of the tunnel.

    Select L2GRE or VXLAN to create a tunnel. If you choose VXLAN, you must enter the remote IP interface.

    Traffic Direction

    The direction of the traffic flowing through the V Series node.

    Choose Out for creating a tunnel from the V Series node to the destination endpoint.

    Note:  Traffic Direction In is not supported in the current release.

    Remote Tunnel IP

    The IP address of the tunnel destination endpoint.

    Note:  You cannot create two tunnels from a V Series node to the same IP address.

  4. Click Save.

To delete a tunnel, select the required tunnel and click Delete.
