Hi

I will use port mirroring.
I learned how to use port mirroring by looking at the manual. 

I have one question.

「As a side effect, port mirroring causes any packets received on output port to be ignored.」

What does this mean?
Does that mean that any packets received on output port will be dropped when they arrive at the switch?

Thanks.
