Show (Hide) Explanation/Reference
Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) is used to analyze network traffic passing through ports on a switch. For example we can configure the Switch to monitor its interface Fa0/0, which connects to the Core, by sending all traffic to/from Fa0/0 to its Fa0/1 interface. At Fa0/1 interface we connect to a computer and use such a software like Wireshark to capture the packets.
