Port Mirroring - Performance & Bandwidth effect

Hey everyone,

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.

Thanks.

Liron.
