Gigamon Aggregate Links | Aggregation Tool

Aggregate traffic from any SPAN port or TAP in the data center to your consolidated tool farm. Combine traffic from multiple access points of a massively parallel network into a single stream for analysis by sending packets from multiple network ports to one or more tool ports.


Connect any tool(s) to any link at anytime without affecting the production network

Improved monitoring efficiency, effectiveness and network uptime


Replicate traffic to support multiple tools with competing monitoring demands

Share SPAN ports and taps, customizing access for all tools all the time


Aggregate traffic from multiple access points to create a "big pipe" or "end-to-end" view

Deploy fewer tools and consolidating valuable tools in a tool farm

Packet Filtering

Customize and map traffic flow to multiple tools and reduce traffic load on all tools

Optimize tool utilization and share loads across multiple tools




The figure below illustrates the concept of data flows between network and tool ports. Data arrives from different sources at the network ports on the left and is forwarded to different tools connected to tool ports on the right. Traffic arriving at a single network port can be sent to multiple destination tool ports. Filters can be applied to network and tool ports. Filters applied to network ports are pre-filters and filters applied to the tool ports are post-filters.
