Can different protocols be configured for each NIC?
RELEVANT VERSIONS: ALL
At present, protocols are handled on a per Monitor/box basis. You cannot currently configure different protocols for each NIC.
For example, if you configured one NIC to monitor FTP traffic on one SPAN and configured the other NIC to monitor HTTP traffic on the other SPAN, you would be analyzing whatever protocols were defined on the Monitor and were coming through both NICS; e.g., you would see and analyze FTP traffic from both NICs.
You could get the desired stats if the filtering was done at the SPAN level, but you would only be able to identify the Monitor that analyzed it, not the NIC that the protocol came in on.
