Are there any known problems with switching to taps if the taps are placed on a single port that forwards data to an IXIA component that distributes the filtered data to the probes?

The TAPs would be installed in one port channel. The traffic is then received by an IXIA component, filtered and forwarded to the probes.

Are there any known problems with this setup?

Because the traffic can arrive on more than one interface, there could be changes in the order of the packets. Does this have an impact on the data processing within the probes?

No known problems, the NAM Probe already supports correcting the order of packets if they arrive out of order.
