Destination Port

A destination port (also called a monitor port)  is a switch port where SPAN sends packets for analysis. Once a port  becomes an active destination port, it does not forward any traffic  except that required for the SPAN session.


Just my guess, that the destination port is the monitoring port....could be wrong.

This could be because you have a SPAN/RSPAN session on your switch and this port is included. Can you run a "sh monitor" on the switch and post the output ?
