    I have two 6500 switches/routers trunked to each other serving various
    devices. The two switches are installed for the purpose of redundancy
    and same VLANs are configured on both. My question is related to
    deploying IDSM-2 blades in this environment. Can I just use single
    blade in one switch and still be able to monitor desired VLANs traffic
    through VACL or SPAN/VSPAN/RSPAN or do I need two IDSM blades; one in
    each switch. Has anyone deployed IDS in this environment and what are
    the benefits of deploying 2 (one is each) versus 1.
