spanned traffic routing

How can one take spanned packets from a mirroing port and use a L3 switch to “classify” and route it to different servers. Would it be the same if the packets were coming from passive taps? Worry I have is if the L3 switch ports would drop the spanned packets because the ports usually cannot be set to promiscuous mode. (Hopefully the L3 device that can do what I want ought not to be expensive.)

Pls correspond directly with me
