CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q479

A network administrator believes that the traffic from a load balancer is only being sent to a single backend server. However, the administrator does not have administrative access to the load balancers or the backend servers.
Which of the following should the administrator do to verify this suspicion?

A. Selectively disable the switch ports connected to the load balancers to determine if traffic is still flowing.
B. Enable port mirroring on the switch connected to the backend servers and analyze the traffic captured.
C. Create a port channel on the switch that includes all of the backend servers and verify the interfaces all have equal traffic.
D. Configure the switch port connected to the load balancer’s ingress port to send traffic to a collector for analysis.
