We are trying to fiugure out a way to gather IDS data via gigabit LX taps, but it seems that there are a number of obticles. Apparently, you will loose lower level errors if you use port-mirroring on a switch, not to mention the amount of data that is lost due to light splitting. Does any one have any suggestions or information as to how this might be done?
