I want to configure port mirroring to some VMs in order to transfer all the packets to a security system.
I search all over the web and found that port mirroring is for troubleshooting and monitoring but not for static configuration cause of performance or bandwidth loose.
I want to know if anyone can measure or evaluate the bandwidth loose or performance overhead due to such configuration.
ESXi and VDS are 5.5、6.5.
I can measure the bandwidth consumption，
1、Do you have any method to measure the performance consumption？measure the esxi performance？
2、to everyone, Has anyone tested it？How about the result？Could you give me some reference？
