This document describes the truncation capability for Tap Aggregation, which allows tapped traffic to be truncated to a smaller size before being transmitted.

Arista switches provide several mirroring features. Filtered mirroring to CPU adds a special destination to the mirroring features that allows the mirrored traffic to be sent to the switch supervisor. The traffic can then be monitored and analyzed locally without the need of a remote port analyzer. Use case of this feature is for debugging and troubleshooting purposes.
