Thanks. That seems like it can be used. I did mention the mac address,
because the switch has two ways of doing a re-prioritization either by
fdb entries via mac addresses or by the high level inspection (HLI)
based on the ether type.

The switch can capture timestamps (nanoseconds) when packets have been
transmitted or received on all ports. The timestamps are stored in a
FIFO and can be retrieved later. As you said tcpdump only works for
packets at the CPU port. This feature is useful for debugging latency
issues for specific traffic flows.

Thanks,
Kurt
