Brocade ICX: Can You Monitor Multiple Ports In One Capture?
There are times when you just need to monitor multiple ports at the same time. One example is when you have and active/active firewall setup, and you need to monitor the traffic going to both internal interfaces. Can you do this on the Brocade ICX switches? Yes, you can. Here is a piece of the config as an example:

interface ethernet 1/1/46 mon ethe 1/1/37 both
interface ethernet 1/1/47 mon ethe 1/1/37 both
