In this lab, the Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN) family of features are demonstrated. By using one of the SPAN features, a switch can copy or mirror traffic from a source to a destination--either on the same switch or to a different switch. Monitored traffic is normally sent to an external network or protocol analyzer or to the Mini Protocol Analyzer, found within a switch itself.
