Hello Jeet,

refer to the section

"Local SPAN, RSPAN, and ERSPAN Session Limits"

2) I don't think you can go above the limits you can configure some features to enable a better way to replicate traffic

see section

"Distributed Egress SPAN Mode Guidelines and Restrictions"

in the same document

Hope to help
