What is the 'decoding' type? SSL Card or Open SSL?

What is the output of following command, executed on the AMD

rcmd show ssldecr status

Hi Kevin,

Do you have SSL keys installed on the AMD to be able to decrypt the traffic?

There is quite a bit of documentation around SSL but first steps are to check if SSL keys are installed and if they match the monitored traffic.

You can do this by using executing "rcmd show ssldecr keys" to view the status of any configured SSL keys.




If there was a change on the traffic encryption, I would recommend you to check out about Diffie-Hellman.


Having a similar issue with 3 of 4 AMDs.

Using OpenSSL on all of them.

No software services using SSL decrypted analyser.

Adam, I ran the 'rcmd show ssldecr status' on one of them and have attached the output. Any ideas?ssldecr-status.txt

from the attach ssldecr_show_status details,

Finished sessions not decrypted=7564 (100% of all finished sessions)
with no private key found=7550 (new sessions=7550 reused sessions=0)

most likely the server being monitored had the SSL cert/key updated or renewed, and now the AMD's key for it is out of date
