Configure GigaVUE-VM on NSX-V
GigaVUE-FM integrates with VMware NSX-V as a partner service, using NSX-V Service Insertion. Service Insertion allows partner services such as Gigamon Traffic Visibility to integrate with NSX-V. When the NSX-V Manager is registered in GigaVUE-FM, a Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service is registered with NSX-V. The Traffic Visibility Service is then installed on the NSX-V compute clusters through the vCenter UI. Installing the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service deploys the GigaVUE-VM Service VMs to each host in the cluster. Security policies are then created that will make a copy of the network traffic and forward it to the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Service.
