This is the first step in installing the BigSwitch Fabric Monitoring Solution. The two BigSwitch Fabric Monitor Controllers are the Dell Servers on the top. Next is a management network switch (for console access to things). Then we have the Out Of Band Switch (you connect sniffers, Sflow, NetFlow, Ntop and other monitoring collectors to that. The last two switches are what are called "Bump In The Wire" switches. Later you will connect a 10GE inteface from these switches to each of your leaf switches for Span use to move things both in and out of your switched fabric.
IMPORTANT NOTE.. The BigSwitch Fabric MONITORING servers SHOULD NOT BE IN THE SAME VLAN with the BigSwitch Fabric Controllers. This causes their failover mechanism to not work correctly.
