  • Page 12: Information About Catena

    Catena provides a hardware-based application chaining solution for Cisco Nexus devices so that packets can be redirected through multiple physical or virtual devices without changing the topology or the existing configuration. The solution works with all L4-L7 virtual and physical devices, such as firewall, IPS, IDS, DOS Protection, WAAS, SSL offload engines, networking monitoring devices, switches, virtual appliances, and containers.

    If you create an appliance cluster, then the traffic is equally distributed to these appliances. Deployment Modes This section describes the various modes in which the Catena solution can be deployed. Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches Configuration Guide: The Catena Solution...
  • Page 14: Transparent Mode

    Catena uses source IP or destination IP to determine the egress interface. Egress interface ports are bundled using the link aggregation control protocol (LACP), and hash algorithms are used for symmetric load balancing.

  • Page 18: Configuring A Port Acl

    Port ACLs (PACLs) are used as filters in transparent mode. They are used to seggregate IP traffic for transparent mode PACL. The traffic is redirected to a particular egress interface based on the access control entries (ACE). Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches Configuration Guide: The Catena Solution...
