SLM2048 Port Mirroring

Hello,

I am having issues with my network reaching 100% utilization so I would like to set up port mirroring.  We recently purchased a few SLM2048's and one of the key features we looked at was port mirroring.

Unfortunately now that I am trying to set it up I came across the limitation that only 4 source ports could be configured.  This is far from helpful on a 48 port switch.  It seems like I must be missing something.  Am I going about this the wrong way?

Thanks!

Re: SLM2048 Port Mirroring

What exactly are you wanting to capture on the switch.  All of our switches have a limit on them.  Our upper end small business switches have a limit of 8 ports that can be mirrored, its a limitation that has been placed on the switch.  If your looking to capture the most traffic on your network to analyze it, I would mirror the tx and rx on the port going to your router/gateway.  This will be where you can analyze a lot of traffic on the network.  If you have servers being utilized a lot, I would try that.
