I have a computer with 6 Ethernet interfaces. The computer is used for logging and will continously log all data on all interfaces. No packet loss is acceptable and therefore no other applications are allowed to run on the computer.
Now I want to connect these same 6 data streams to a separate computer that will visualize the data in real time. The second computer only have one interface. The visualization is not as critical as the logging, so it is not as big a deal if I loose a packet here or there in this transfer.
What hardware setup should I use to connect my 6 sources to 7 destinations?
Clarification: this is my current setup. The number of interfaces might change over time so I would prefer a setup that is configurable.
