Issue/Introduction

Is there a way for Spectrum to detect that a port is mirrored and monitor it accordingly?


 

Cause

The customer was seeing BAD Link Detected Alarms on mirrored ports b/c the ifAdminStatus was set to UP and the ifOperStatus was down for mirrored ports. 

Environment

Release : 10.3
Release : 10.4.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

Currently Spectrum cannot detect if a port is mirrored and it will be treated like any other port.
