MAX- Port monitor Session (more than 2)

Hi,

I have a network with 4 different types of traffics and I would like to monitor them. I have 4 different Ports connected to different analyzers. Unfortunately I am only able to create 2 monitor sessions on my catalyst 3560G.

Is there any workaround or appliances that I could use to make this happen.

Thank You

One solution would be to to SPAN all traffic but rely on sniffer to filter.

With 2 sessions and 4 streams, you would have to filter 2 streams per sniffer( at sniffer level).

Another solution is to trunk the remaining 2 streams to another switch and run 2 additional session there.
