    Yes you can capture traffic on your switch, but if you use conventional
    sniffers then you would receive only what is sent to you, unless you are
    using technologies like span / port mirror etc. The other way to sniff
    on your switch would be to use tools like dsniff / ettercap etc. These
    tools use cache poisoning techniques to get their way thru. To read more

    Yes sinffing can be detected. Well evading detection would mean sniffing
