A super cheap aggregating tap that's readily accessible... no promises on the throughput, but I've used on port pairs
with sustained 200Mbps throughput without issues:


There's a bunch of similar netgear five port switches.  Only the "Prosafe Plus" one supports a single mirroring port.

It can be configured to mirror any or all of the other ports.  I got my last one for $49.
