fellow at niksun also pointed me to 
   http://www.niksun.com/press_releases/NIKSUN_PR_ETH_GIGABIT.htm
i'll try to get those three up on the taxonomy
(narus: NT/solaris, seems to have a billing focus?
netscout: seems to be RMON2-based, with gigE support for that
niksun: freebsd-based, also a bunch of other media
	(t1,e1(ppp&fr), v.35, HSSI, normal enets (10/100), fddi, 
	soon atm+pos oc3+12)), optimizations for capturing speed,
	closest to coral kind of stuff.  supposed to ship june 2000.
)
haven't used any of them, if others want their 
comments in taxonomy, anonymized or not, forward to me?

  I've had good luck with Netscout (www.netscout.com) for other products, and
  I know they have Gig-E taps (two on order now) and I think they have OC-12
  taps too.

      Does anybody know a product to do Gigabit Ethernet traffic monitoring,
  like
      CoralReef does for OC3/OC12 ?

  am not aware of anyone currently shipping such a monitor,
  (i'd pay good money to be wrong tho)
  although several companies are planning to add gig-e to
  their existing monitoring products.
  caida does have funding from darpa to develop a
  gigabit ethernet monitor, & we will make that system
  work w coralreef, but unfortunately i can't nail down
  a ship date at this time
  
  hopefully someone will point out a product
  i missed and i'll add it to the taxonomy
