Mirror Traffic to a Local Device destination (Recommended Way)

The recommended way to mirror traffic is to send the traffic to a local device for your packet analyzer.

To mirror traffic to a local device, you need to:

  1. Create a local device for your packet analyzer tool.
  2. Configure a Mirror Destination to send to a Local Device.
  3. Configure Airwall Gateways to act as Mirror Sources.
  4. Adjust performance for mirrored traffic.
  5. Set up security for mirrored traffic.
  6. Configure your packet analyzer tool.

These steps are described in more detail in the following sections.
