20 & 40 Gbps Capture Performance
No doubt, the challenge to test and monitor high‐speed wired, wireless and mobile networks is greater than ever before.
Emerging technologies like 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet or LTE require powerful solutions for comprehensive testing and monitoring. Applications such as Voice over IP, video streaming, and peer‐to‐peer (P2P) Internet traffic require deeper packet monitoring and inspection.
SwiftWing SIRIUS Systems are optimized in usability and performance to allow user to focus on working with the network data and not operating the capture appliances.
Running Packet Capture with SIRIUS....
Analysis, Monitoring or Troubleshooting is dependent on precise data. Established applications or appliances, on one hand, can provide, with all their designed features & functions, comprehensive and competent results in problem solving, detailed statistics and complete reporting, in alpha numeric or graphical views.
On the other hand, these systems can only capture the required details at moderate data rates, especially proprietary networking analysis solutions, that once seemed to be tailor‐made for your organization, nowadays may show their weaknesses and flaws.
Perhaps, your organization and its technological requirements have changed over the years, or, even worse, your network is getting too complex or it‘s simply too fast to be covered with the current tools.
We may not solve every trouble caused at such conditions, but we understand that accurate results depend on 101% capture performance.
SIRIUS is the ultimate "Capture Service & Server" on enterprise level to all your existing NetTools.
The Aggregation & Mediation Layer
The source for capturing data can be be a single passively tapped link (with a BreakOut TAP), a SPAN Port (a Switch Port with copied data of any other port(s)) or a combined stream of monitor data from various sorces (e.g., a mix from TAPs and SPANs sources). Today the Mediation Layer for aggregating and control multiple sources of monitoring traffic is a key functionality in Network Monitoring.
Various analysis applications may require different configuration, e.g., to filter out or extract certain parts of monitoring traffic for different kind of investigation. To take off payload of IP packets may be the case and/or the regeneration or duplication of other or same parts for another purpose in the same moment is required as well.
