Packet Capture (PCAP)

with Network Performance Monitor


Fully functional for 30 days

Is it the application or the network impacting users? Dig deep now with packet capture

Poor end-user experience

Application and network response time both impact end-user experience. Figure out which is to blame with pcap.

Unidentified network traffic

If you don't know what to look for, identifying traffic on your network can be impossible.

Unexpected traffic and data volume

Spot possible security breaches by looking at spikes in network traffic.

Get to the root cause of poor end-user experience or network traffic anomalies faster

  1. Determine if it is the application or the network

    Capture packet data and calculate network and applcation response time to determine if end user quality of experience is impacted by the network or the application. SolarWinds' network monitoring software provides a Quality of Experience dashboard that features a quick-glance summary of a variety of network and application performance metrics. Analyze packets using a SPAN/mirror port and a dedicated software sensor installed on server or by deploying a sensor directly on an application server.

  2. Identify traffic by application

    Analyze and identify network traffic by capturing and analyzing packets. SolarWinds' packet capture software identifies over 1200 applications, calculates application and network response time, data volume and transactions, and categorizes traffic into types, volumes, classification, and risk.

  3. See how much data is traversing your network

    Unusual spikes in traffic may be an indicator of a security breach. SolarWinds' pcap software, you can analyze packets to quantify and display data volume and transaction volume by application.

Packet Capture Tool definition

Packet capture intercepts, logs, and analyzes network traffic. By analyzing the header and payload, one can identify, classify, and troubleshoot traffic by application type, source, and destination

With SolarWinds we have seen improvements in availability and reductions in time-to-resolution. We are able to rectify problems much faster, before users start complaining."
