When you connect the monitoring point to AppNeta Performance Manager (APM), the port that you use matters because only one is pre-configured to acquire an IP address by DHCP. Similarly, certain ports are pre-configured to enable usage monitoring out of the box.
What port do I use?
The following table describes the ports that are pre-configured. Use the port in the ‘to AppNeta’ row to connect the device to your APM service instance.
|Out-of-band cabling||E0||E5||E0||E5||E0||E0||E0@1G and E6@10G|
|Inline cabling||N/A||E4/E5||E0/E1||E4/E5||E0/E1||E0/E1||E0/E1@1G and N/A@10G|
|Console port settings||N/A||Speed = 19200 (115200 for m25/m35) , Data bits = 8, Stop bits = 1, Parity = None, Flow control = XON/XOFF|
The complete list of ports for each device model and their intended usage is described in the Complete Port Descriptions table.
r400 SFPs: The r400 has one 10G interface, E7, with VLAN support, which can be used for monitoring. It also has one receive-only 10G interface, E6, which is meant for out-of-band flow collection. The r400 ships with two 10Gbps 850nm multi-mode transceivers: Finisar FTLX8571D3BCL, but you can swap these out for your own 10G SFPs if necessary.
