HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]

Use Cisco SPAN Methodology - PORT Mirroring Feature.

Mirror the traffic of the Trunk PORT because any traffic should have a destination end point. So by this way, you can capture the Orginating PORT and the type of Traffic itself.

Refer the Attachment for Cisco SPAN Configuration.

Hope i am Informative.

Pls Rate if HELPS

You can get individual port utilization and switch fabric utilization stats with the "show controllers utilization command.

I believe you can use "sh interface counters" and compare across the interfaces.

SPAN may not help in this case, cos you've to locate one particular interface, which might not be feasible with SPAN.
