Configure GigaVUE-VM on NSX-T

GigaVUE‑FM integrates with VMware NSX-T as a service definition, using NSX-T Service Insertion. Service Insertion allows service definitions such as GigaVUE Cloud Suite to integrate with NSX-T. When the NSX-T Manager is registered in GigaVUE‑FM, a GigaVUE Cloud Suite is registered as a service with NSX-T. The GigaVUE-VMs can then be deployed as a Service Instances to specific clusters. Service Chains are then created that will make a copy of the network traffic and forward it to the GigaVUE-VM.

The chapter includes the following major sections:

■   Prerequisites for Integrating GigaVUE-VM with NSX-T
■   Integrate GigaVUE-VM with NSX-T
■   Remove Gigamon Service from NSX-T and GigaVUE‑FM

Note:  These steps assume that VMware NSX-T is installed and configured.
