How does one Monitor ports on an HP Procurve switch
I am mirgrating over to a new Web Filtering application. Currently the web filtering sofware I use allows me to use a hub in order to monitor the traffic. But I am going to be forced to use my HP procurve switches for this purpose now. I have 3 HP Procurve switches;
Procurve 2824 (J4903A)
Procurve 2848 (J4904A)
Procurve 4000M (J4121A)
I need to know how to enable port monitoring so that I can monitor traffic. I wanted to use on dedicated port in the switch for monitor the network. I am not sure how to do this since my clients are spread out over three switches. To be honest I am not sure how to do this even if all the clients were on the one switch.
I have logged into the switches. The interface seems almost identicle on all three switches.
