Re: SPAN on 6500 series

Hi Ganesh,

Thanks for reply,  As per the document and my knoweldge i can configure SPAN as i have given configuration example bleow, and that should not make any raise in CPU utilization as 6500 deos not use CPU to switch Packets or mirror packets.

monitor session 1 source  Vlan 1-100 , 350 

monitor session 1 destination interface G9/10

am i right and can i go ahead with this configuration?

Regards

Jagdev
