Hi guys, I'm very confused. I would like to monitor the port traffic of my Cisco 3560 and 2960 switches through software such as PacketTrap IT. I understand that these switches doesn't support NetFlow. I have a Cisco 3560 as a Core Switch and 3 X 2960 as Edge Switches. The Core switch is being connected to each Edge switches (uplink). I read that we can use port mirroring?

In order to monitor individual port of each switches, where do I configure port mirroring on? Is it only on the Core Switch or on all switches? Then I should connect the port that is mirrored to the PacketTrap Server?
