Does anyone have experience monitoring V-Block environment where WEB, APP and DB sits in the same V-Block, is it even supported? I understand that tapping the WEB traffic to the V-Block is still possible thru the cisco switch but anything within V-Block seems to be a challenge unless we have some way to tap the inter-traffic.
There's probably two solutions here.
- Add a virtualised AMD into the Vblock, configure the Nexus 1000v to SPAN traffic to it.
- Configure the 1000v to span the traffic out to a physial port, where you can plug an AMD into it.
