Implement packet tracing on vSwitch with vTap

I am interested on visualizing east west traffic as well as egress within my NTX environment. With Open vSwitch it seems to be supported through the default vTap interface on the bridges created on my interfaces.  My question is, has anyone successfully set up a Nutanix vTap interface to capture packet flow on an external appliance and are there any negative side effects of such a design (overhead, congestion, latency… etc)?  I do have an upstream appliance that can handle the analysis similar to Gigamon, CloudLens and ExtraHop.
