ERSPAN support on NS5200

Dear community,

We are about to migrate to a new ACI fabric, which is to connect to the IPS inline interfaces (for one logical zone) as well as mirroring traffic (for other zones).

Since the NS5200 only has 8 RJ45 ports, 4 of which are already planned as Inline, we are to configure the rest 4 ports as SPAN.

However, since there are 6 Leaf switches to which the endpoints are connected. So, we must configure ERSPAN (since with Local SPAN full visibility cannot be achieved). Does the NS5200 support receiving and decapsulating ERSPAN packets at all, or do we have to wait for a new packet broker for that purpose?

Thanks in advance (also appreciate if you have any documentation on whether ERSPAN is supported or not)
