How to check the packet flow on an Aruba Controller with controlpath/datapath pcap enabled?

Aruba Employee
Q:

How to check the packet flow on an Aruba Controller with controlpath/datapath packet capture is enabled?



A:
In some situation we may need to enable packet capture on Aruba Controller however if we are unable to locate a computer which has wireshark installed to look at the captured packets, we could check the packet flow on an Aruba Controller itself and below is an example of controlpath capture with all UDP traffic.
