Virtual Packet Decoder - Physical Network Tap

Hi everyone,

 

I'm looking to deploy a Virtual Packet Decoder but using a Physical network tap. There are documents surrounding the use of vSwitch promiscuous mode and Virtual taps, but nothing around physical taps.

 

I do realise that if I use a physical tap that virtual machine will be 'locked' to the physical host and a particular physical interface on that esx host.

 

Has anyone done this before?

Thanks.
