Re: many to many dup-to option?

You state that collisions on your hub, sitting in the "traffic

Is the issue the collisions themselves, or just the switches disabling
If it's the ports, then couldn't you use your obsd dup-to box to
aggregate the traffic, and put the hub AFTER it?
Alternatively, how about a "hub matrix" (As it seems to me if you have
enough traffic to swamp a hub, you're obsd box would have to be so buff
as to rival netoptics taps in expense):
switch1 --- hub1 -|--- IDS(int1)
switch2 --- hub2 -|--- IDS(int2)
2hubs + 8 interfaces, are much cheaper than a fast-enough openbsd
machine, aren't they?
