Using a link from the Discovery Diagnostics screen, you can capture traffic from an AMD and save it in pcap format for examination with tools such as DNA and Wireshark.

These traces are typically used to diagnose, for example, an AMD SPAN port configuration problem.

See Selecting a traffic capture method to understand the difference between various capture methods in DC RUM.

  1. On the CAS, open Tools ► Diagnostics ► Traffic diagnostics.

  2. In the AMD IP address column, click the IP address of the AMD from which you want to capture traffic.

  3. In the pop-up window, click the Capture traffic trace link.

  4. In the Capture traffic trace window

    1. Optionally, enter an IP address in the IP Filter box to narrow the capture.

      The capture runs for 30 seconds or until 20 MB are captured.
      When the capture is finished, click Download to download the captured file or click Cancel to cancel the capture.
