Spirent TestCenter: How do I capture with intent to analyze generated traffic?
TestCenter captures only Transmit - Control plane traffic.
Tx Mode (only capture transmit frames [control plane traffic only] from the port)
Rx Mode (capture control and data plane traffic received on the port)
Tx/Rx Mode (capture both transmit frames [control plane traffic only] and receive frames [control and data plane traffic])
If you wish to make a capture of the Data plane you will Transmit you can put the port in diagnostic loopback and capture the Receive Control and Data plane traffic.
For help in the Capture Window of the GUI, select F1 (i.e., help). Hitting it will directly open Help on this Topic.
