trunk ring

i have 2 switch 6509 with MSFC and 2 switch 6513.

These switches are connected in a trunk ring by 2 GE interfaces on every switch.

All the same VLAN are defined on all the switches.

I need to analyze traffic and i need to set VSPAN sessions. WIll the ring give problems? that is, if traffic from one server, linked to one of the switch 6513, goes on the trunk and it reaches the MSFC before going on the second switch 6513, where it has been defined the SPAN destination port for the VSPAN session, will i be able to monitor anyway this traffic?

Thanks

Re: trunk ring

When using SPAN, remember that the switch will only copy the traffic flowing through the port that you are monitoring.

So I don't think you will be able to monitor traffuc that doesn't pass through the second switch
