Hello,
After creating aggregation groups, I was wondering whether I have to assign those tap groups to a ‘tool’ interface by applying the IF sub command ‘switchport tool group set ‘. Those tool interfaces are eventually connected to third party applications, such as network sniffer tools.
In other words, with Arista Tap Manager you simply aggregate SPAN ports from network devices and forward the traffic to third party sniffer tools for further analysis.

I would appreciate if someone could please advise me on this topic a bit further.

Thanks,

Martin

Hi Martin,

Yes, you need to assign groups to tool ports.

Assigning Tap Ports to a Tap Aggregation Group
switch(config)#interface ethernet 41-42
switch(config-if-Et41-42)#switchport tap default group analyze1

Assigning a Tool Port to Tap Aggregation Groups
switch(config)#interface port-channel 101
switch(config-if-Po101)#switchport tool group set analyze1

You can validate using below command

show tap aggregation groups
Group Name Tool Members
---------------------------------------------------------
analyze1 Po101

Group Name
---------------------------------------------------------
analyze1 Et41, Et42

If you are using GUI, check out below article.
