I am using a Cisco switch. I'm trying to avoid mirroring (SPAN), since it's
more CPU intensive than flooding, but I may not be able to. Thanks for the
suggestion, though.

Another possible answer, get a good switch (cisco or similar) and use port 
mirroring (or monitoring depending on manufacturer). Expensive but will do 
what you want it to do.
