Gigamon's innovative aggregation and packet filtering technology is designed for enterprise networks and data centers. Aggregate traffic from any SPAN port or TAP in the data center to increase network visibility. By sending packets from multiple network ports to one or more tool ports GigaVUE traffic visibility nodes enable aggregation of network traffic from multiple access points of a massively parallel network into a single stream for analysis.
Traffic arrives from different sources at the network ports and is forwarded to different tools connected to tool ports. Traffic arriving at a single network port can be sent to multiple destination tool ports. Filters can be applied to network and tool ports. Filters applied to network ports are pre-filters and filters applied to the tool ports are post-filter
