Severity: 3-Major


tcpdump can be used to capture packets from the Linux side (using the Linux kernel's tcpdump instead of capturing from tmm). However this cannot be done on all interfaces and VLANs at the same time. The command needs to specify a particular VLAN for its Linux side capture.


Linux side tcpdump capture can be done on only one single vlan at a time.


Running tcpdump .


There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

tcpdump now accepts the option 'any:l' which allows capture on all interfaces and VLANs at the same time from the Linux side.
