    Dear all,

    Would anyone please tell me the difference in features between Cisco
    Network Analysis Module (NAM) and Sniffer (besides NAM is integrated
    into the switch and Sniffer is portable)?

    Regards,

    They are not really the same things. NAM can be used to capture the
    packets that traverse the VLANs/ports. But it's not really a protocol
    analyzer per se. And it's hard drive is woefully inadequate
    considering the speed and size of the backplane.
