about SPAN, need help!

My question is simple:

whether the data will be overflowed when I mirror a GE port's traffic to a FE port?

thanks

Re: about SPAN, need help!

When mirroring higher rate ports to a lower rate port, as in your example, you have the risk of overloading what capabilities your SPAN port can handle. These packets that would not make it to your SPAN port due to it being at 100% would be output dropped.

Hope that helps,

Don
