AggregationProfitap NPB feature deep dive
Aggregate traffic coming from multiple incoming links
Optimize port, bandwidth, and network tool utilization by consolidating traffic from multiple sources, such as Network TAPs.
Aggregation can be combined with the replication feature to send the aggregated traffic to multiple output ports. It can also be combined with both the replication and filtering features to send different parts of the aggregated traffic to different output ports.
Use case examples:
- Send traffic from multiple sources to monitoring and security tools as a single stream
- Aggregate multiple traffic streams into higher-speed links
