Comment: add entry for arista - point to same page as switching list. Arista does both advanced port mirroring and has a separate mode for TAP aggregation so belongs in both lists

Tap Reference

Unlike switches and hubs, network taps operate independently of your network hardware. Many models have a number of advantages including performance, filtering, timestamping, manageability, and visibility but they also add expense and typically require rack space and power. For complete discussions of port mirroring vs taps, see the blog articles by Tim O'Neil and Richard Bejtlich.
