Typically monitoring of a full duplex link requires the use of two ports on the monitoring tool – one for each side of the duplex link. Tap Aggregators (also known as Port Aggregators or Aggregation Taps) combine traffic into two of more traffic streams, each of which has the aggregated data from the duplex flows and allow network staff to monitor a full duplex connection with a single monitoring tool. Ixia offers three different tap aggregators: Copper Port Aggregators – for monitoring individual 1G copper duplex links, Fiber Port Aggregators – for monitoring individual 10G fiber duplex links, and ILink Agg Tap Aggregators – for monitoring of multiple 1G copper or fiber links.
