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:
- After creating a new monitoring session, or click Edit on an existing monitoring session, the GigaVUE-FM canvas appears.
- In the canvas, select New > New Tunnel, drag and drop a new tunnel template to the workspace. The Add Tunnel Spec quick view appears.
- 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.
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.
- Click Save.
To delete a tunnel, select the required tunnel and click Delete.
