High-availability Seamless Redundancy Protocol (HSR)

HSR is a Layer 2 redundancy protocol for Ethernet. HSR adds a header to each frame, and duplicates the frame, sending it along two directions of a ring. Nodes in the ring pass the frame along the ring, using the header to discard duplicates.

Example traffic

Ethernet II, Src: ZurichUn_15:77:84 (00:15:12:15:77:84), Dst: IntelCor_5c:22:42 (00:1b:21:5c:22:42)

The HSR dissector is fully functional. Supervision frames have the same format as in the related Parallel Redundancy Protocol, so they share a common dissector. The HSR dissector only handles the actual HSR header.
