Configure Inline Bypass Solutions

Inline bypass solutions are arrangements of inline networks that act to guide traffic through one or more inline tools attached to a GigaVUE node.

Configure inline bypass solutions using the following software constructs:

■   Inline network

For configuring inline networks, which are pairs of network ports attached to the sides of the network, refer to About Inline Networks.

■   Inline network groups

For configuring inline network groups, which are multiple inline networks sharing the same inline tool or tools, refer to About Inline Network Groups.

■   Inline tool

For configuring inline tools, which are pairs of inline tool ports plus the inline tools attached to the ports, refer to About Inline Tools.

■   Heartbeat profile

For configuring monitoring of inline tools using heartbeat and/or negative heart beat packets or both, refer to About Heartbeats.

■   Inline tool group

For configuring multiple inline tools, which are arrangements of multiple inline tools to which traffic is distributed based on hashing, refer to About Inline Tool Groups.

■   Inline serial tools

For configuring inline tools in a series, in which traffic is guided through the inline tools in a serial fashion. Refer to About Inline Serial Tools.

The steps to configure inline constructs are only applied to GigaVUE HC Series nodes. In a cluster environment, these steps are only applied to GigaVUE HC Series nodes through the cluster leader.

The inline constructs must all be configured on one GigaVUE‑HC3,GigaVUE‑HC2, or one GigaVUE‑HC1 node, not across nodes, even if the nodes are in a cluster.

In addition to the steps listed, a map passall, map, or map shared collector is part of the configuration. For more information, refer to Associate Inline Networks with Inline Tools Using Inline Maps.

For out-of-band maps, refer to Out-of-Band (OOB) Map.

For the order in which to configure the software constructs associated with inline bypass solutions, refer to Configuration Steps.
