Permanent Port Mirror on vDS

  • 1.  Permanent Port Mirror on vDS

    Anyone have any experience or guidance around port mirroring on a vDS.  It's something that I've used in the past, but usually for one off servers or temporarily for troubleshooting.  We have an ask to turn on port mirroring for all VMs in a smaller vCenter (around 100 VMs) and essentially leave it on permanently.  We'd be doing remote mirroring source type and dumping all the traffic out a dedicated uplink.  I've struggled to find any guidance around a constant port mirror setup for lots of VMs.  Anyone doing anything like this currently or have tried?  Thanks for any info
