EFFECT OF DUPLICATE PACKETS
Packet duplication is a constant problem in all large-scale data center networks. These duplicate packets cause several problems if the network monitoring switch is not able to eliminate the copies.
Since all the traffic that flows through is not useful, it is advisable to use a network packet broker which can remove redundant duplicate data. To save time, and processing power, duplicate packets, and other redundant data can be removed before reaching monitoring and security tools. However, it is also crucial that the network packet broker should not drop relevant original data.
Cubro offers advanced NPBs with zero-loss advanced packet processing at full line rate. These packet brokers carefully sift out the duplicate data and transmit the original data to the monitoring tools.
