This paper provides a brief overview of the various features that NAM 4.2 software includes. Note that NAM software has a common set of features irrespective of the hardware platform on which it is running. Some differences in behavior do exist; for example, the NAM line cards on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches support Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN) technology, whereas the network modules on the Cisco 2800 and 3800 Series Routers do not. (SPAN is a Layer 2 feature. It is not supported on the ISR series of routers, which support only Layer 3 functionality.) But from a feature perspective, there is consistency across all platforms. Needless to say, performance and scalability will differ based on the capabilities of the hardware, and information relating to such matters will be provided wherever relevant.
