I’ve just purchased a new Unifi USW-48-PoE switch for my homelab. This is to upgrade a Netgear Pro managed switch which only has 16 ports and is fully populated.
On the Netgear switch I have one port defined as a “probe” with all the the other ports mirrored. On the probe port I connected an ntopng server to monitor all the network traffic. This works really well and ntopng can see all the traffic on the switch.
I am trying to do the same thing on the new Unifi switch, but it seems the only option available is to do a 1:1 port mirror, with no facility to mirror all the ports to a single probe port.
I’ve Googled for some info thinking I had missed something obvious, but it seems I’m not alone in finding this difficult on Unifi switches. Can anyone offer some advice on how to do this.
BTW, this is my first post on this forum, so I hope I’m in the right place
