I appologize if this has already been answered, but I haven't been able to find this info.

Can the Express 500 be configured to monitor multiple ports at once?

In the configuration examples I see that a single source port can be chosen (within CNA), but I want to be able to monitor all the ports (minus the monitoring port of course).

I also see that VSPAN is will do what I want, but I have not been able to confirm this is supported on the Express 500 series.

I think only one destination port is allowed per SPAN session, and the same port cannot be a destination port for multiple SPAN sessions. Therefore, you cannot have two SPAN sessions that use the same destination port.
