Port 3 on the r90 requires a 10Gbps SFP so that it can be used for Usage monitoring. It comes pre-configured so no additional configuration is required. It just needs the SFP and to be cabled.
Cable the 10G Usage monitoring interface
To cable the r90 for 10G Usage monitoring:
- Configure port mirroring on your switch so that the source mirror port is the one you want to monitor and the destination mirror port is the one you will connect to the r90.
- Using a cable appropriate for the type of SFP installed (e.g., CAT 6), connect port 3 on the r90 to the destination mirror port on the switch.
- Port 3 is ready to use for 10G Usage monitoring.
