Does Licensing Limit the packet-capture capability of AMD as well? or just the CAS?

Let's say if there is no supported decode, or the license is not issued for the supported decode:

When I do a tcpdump, which of the following is true?

A: AMD would not capture everything, due to the limitation of the license you've purchased

B: AMD capture everything it sees, just that when you pass the data captured to....reporting/configuration for display on the CAS and/or RUM Console, it would show/not show based on your license.

Hi Wai,

The packet capture feature on the CAS or tcpdump/nfdump on the AMD is not affected by what decodes you are licensed for. When you initiate a packet capture the AMD will capture everything unless you have a filter defined.
