NSX 6.4.4 Packet Capture - Assuring It Won't Impact Performance

The packet capture is a very helpful new feature in NSX. Is there a way to assure concerned

parties that it would be unlikely to impact performance of other NSX functions - load balancing,

firewalling etc?

Keep track of CPU and MEM utilization during the packet capture to confirm that system is not under resource crunch during the packet captures.

It all depend upon the amount of traffic passing through the vNic on which capture is set.
