I have 4 6500 switch and have layer 2 etherchannle with STP running across them.
I have various servers connected to all 4 switches. now i want to monitor the traffic between those servers. I plan to use VLAN based RSPAN so that I can connect Sniffer(dedicated) only one switch.
But i see one limitaiton of RSPAN that one of the switch where Sniffer is connected (i.e destination port)i also have source ports/vlan.. Will that allow me to do ?
If not, what is best way to have monitoring for above requirment....
Thanks in advance,
