To export the capture file in pcap format, use show capture –pcap and pipe it to SCP, FTP, or Email.

To export via SCP, use the following syntax:

[admin@UplogixLM]# show capture -pcap | scp uplogix@192.0.2.226:uplogixlm.cap1
uplogix@192.0.2.226's password:*******
..
File successfully sent to 192.0.2.226.
copy succeeded

In the above example, the capture file will be attached to the email with the filename uplogixlm.cap1. The file can then be viewed in any third party application capable of reading pcap files (Wireshark, etc.).

To export the capture file in plain text with SCP, FTP, or Email, simply omit the –pcap option.

In the Uplogix web interface

To enable capture mode:

Inventory > group page > Network > Secondary Ethernet - specific to this inventory group

Inventory > Local Manager page > Network > Secondary Ethernet - specific to this system
