    Default does sending/mirror traffic to another destination port interupt traffice flow?

    This example shows how to configure VLAN 901 as the source remote VLAN and port 5 as the destination interface:
    Switch(config)# monitor session 1 source remote vlan 901
    Switch(config)# monitor session 1 destination interface fastEthernet0/5
    Switch(config)# end



    I want to sniff vlan 901 vlan to see what kind of traffic is coming and going from this vpn router. noone knows what kind
    of traffice is coming or going on the vpn router so I want to sniff the vlan 901 which it is on. will sniffing/mirror trafic to another destination port
    sscrew up the traffic going to and from the vpn router in vlan 901. I dont want to f it up hahahah thanks. My gut feeling is it wont since it is only mirroring it but want to get a 2nd opinion.
