I was just reading an ntop guide and it mentioned
many switches have port mirroring.
According to what I am reading, the Cisco I am using
will copy all traffic to the mirror port. Then,
I can monitor what is going on from there.
That seems like a good way to do this.
Are there any pitfalls with this approach?
Would ntop be a good tool for it?
I would like to graph total bytes in and out
as well as 95% usage on an IP address level.
I would like daily, weekly, and monthly graphs.
