On the ProVision ASIC family (3500,5400,6200,6600,8200) you can have 4 ports for "analyzers" called "mirror sessions", and 32 "monitor sessions" for "traffic of interest"...this includes capability for mix of local and remote mirror/monitor.

(monitor session is what you want to capture, mirror session is where you send the capture to)

Get this CLI ref guide, it shows how to configure HP ProVision, HP Comware5 and Cisco switches for lots of different functions, in a side-by-side comparison, so if you know one CLI, you see how to do it in a different CLI:

Chap 31 has the mirroring configs.
