Issue/Introduction

The Endace DAG 4.5GE card is not recognized and does not dump data.

Resolution

Symptom

Running the daginf command results in the following:

> daginf -v
daginf: panic: No DAG cards found! Is dag driver
loaded?

Resolution

Running the dagconfig command resolves the problem and the data can be dumped.

> dagconfig default
> dagconfig nic
>  dagconfig enablea
> dagconfig varlen slen=1540
> dagconfig rxonly
> dagconfig -si


To check whether or not the card is working properly, you can dump the received data using dagsnap. Ensure that you restart the server afterward.
 
> dagsnap -o /tmp/tracefile
> ls -l /tmp/tracefile
