"Flowmon Packet Investigator helps us to automate troubleshooting, which means we can spend less time in Wireshark PCAPs. Instead of going through packets manually, we know immediately what kind of issue we are dealing with and what the root cause is. And because we don't need deep knowledge of network protocols to use it, packet analysis is made available to every member of our IT team."
Packet analysis is irreplaceable in situations when network telemetry data does not provide a sufficient level of detail and it is, therefore, necessary to look inside the content of the communication. Where packet sniffing tools like Wireshark only capture network traffic but require expert knowledge to interpret the events, the Packet Investigator takes things a step further and analyzes the packets automatically.
Its PCAP analysis engine understands network protocols, their dependencies, RFC specifications, and errors. Thanks to that, the administrator is provided with a clear understanding and suggestions for a remedy.
