Implementing SWG with Blades and LACP
Is it possible to deploy a SWG in INLINE mode between a core switch and a blade switch if they are using link aggregation with multiple network cables/ports in parallel to increase the link speed ?? ( LACP or Ethernet bonding, NIC teaming, Trunking, port channel, link bundling.. )
A lot of companies has the ISA servers or proxies as virtual machines in Blade infrastructure. What is the best way to integrate SWG with this scenario ??
Even if the communication between the core swith and blade switch was using only one ethernet port/cable... is there any way to avoid the fear of having to pass all the network traffic from the network to the multiple virtual machines or servers into the Blades, throug the SWG machine in inline mode ??
If the answer is TAP Monitoring, is it possible to monitor the link aggregation ports ??
