Q:

What is the command to check if traffic is being received on Packet Processor SPAN port



A:

We can use the below command on Packet Processor Cli to check if there is any traffic being received on Packet Processor SPAN port:

cli stats SERVER_PPE | grep -A 4 rx-pkts

 

The value for rx-pkts should increase every time we execute the command. This would indicate that there are packets being continuously received on SPAN port. 

 

If the rx-pkts value is constant or has value "0" , it means that the SPAN port on Packet Processor is not receiving any traffic/packets from the uplink Switch or packet broker.
