Packet capture Feature on MX67

Hi all, 

I am just wondering if other of you experience the same issue.


I have a MX 67 in place and I would like to use the packet capture function.

Now every ones in a while it works quite well. Means I start it, I filter on a host and the output can be seen in the window below.

But most of the time I start a capture and nothing happens except the the turning circle. Also if i start it and stop it again...most of the time no output but sometimes output will display. 


I am just wondering if this capture feature is not reliable or what could be the issue.

I set even a filter to a host address in order that i will not have to much output.


Intrested in your experience.

You probably checked that before, but yes, I had these problems and every time it was me using the wrong device or the wrong interface ... Layer8 Problem.

Hi @rwiesmann , default option now is that the output is straight to wireshark.  Are you selecting the option to output below?

I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.

@DarrenOCI know the options and used to show the output in den window just below. I would understand that it could not show all the output without any filter...but filtered only on one host from which i sent ICMP Packets.

I've had this issue intermittently and a device reboot seems to fix it.


I think the issue is in particular firmware versions.  I haven't run into the issue for a while.
