Technical Specifications

PROFISHARK 100M HELPS YOU:

 

QUICKLY GET PACKET-LEVEL INSIGHT

ProfiShark enables complete data capture in a portable form factor. This means you can deploy rapidly anywhere, and capture the traffic data you need, with no performance impact on your production network.

GET TRACE FILES YOU CAN RELY ON

To help optimize your analysis workflow and consume less disk storage, ProfiShark offers packet slicing capabilities, making sure you only get actionable data.

GET TRANSPARENT AND NON-INTRUSIVE ACCESS

Capture network data without impacting security or performance. The ProfiShark and host PC will not show up as a node on the network. Network connection is maintained, even when power to the ProfiShark is disconnected. ProfiShark is set up to passthrough PoE.

GET THE TIMESTAMP ACCURACY YOU NEED

Accurate timestamping is essential for the analysis of performance metrics like TCP flow throughput, delay and jitter. ProfiShark 100M provides hardware timestamping with 8 ns accuracy.
