be carefull with the 29xx.
You can only use one SPAN Port. And you can only monitor the traffic of one

Subject: Ethernet tap or span port

Since I cannot buy 20 or 30 Netopics Ethernet taps, can someone give me
information about the best way to do port spanning and the limitations of a
span port? (More specifically, a Cisco 2924XL)
