QoS in TAP configuration

Hi All,

Is it possible to use QoS and Realtime bandwidth monitoring capabilities, while in a TAP only configuration?

Cheers,

Re: QoS in TAP configuration

No. Tap mode allows you to pasively monitor traffic in your network by way of a switch SPAN or mirror port.  You have visibility to the traffic, but are not in the flow of traffic and therefore cannot shape it.
