Packets captured on the monitoring port(s) on the primary NT200A02 SmartNIC is replicated and transferred to the secondary NT200A02 SmartNIC over interconnect cables between the two SmartNIC’s. Thereby, server system overhead due to QPI transfer between CPU sockets is eliminated. The solution supports transfer of 40G line rate captured Ethernet traffic for 1x40G or 4x10G monitoring ports.
