ProfiShark 10G+

The Ultimate Portable TAP


ProfiShark 10G+ is a powerful, versatile portable network TAP, with advanced timestamping capabilities. It is a portable network TAP, with additional GPS/GLONASS input for UTC timestamping, and PPS input/output for timestamp synchronization.

The ProfiShark 10G+ accepts 1G Fiber, 10G Fiber, 1G Copper, and 10G Copper SFPs, bringing the ease of use and performance of the ProfiShark design to new heights. Powered by USB 3.0, the ProfiShark 10G+ captures network traffic, with accurate timestamps, and packets of all sizes and types. The packets can in turn be analyzed with Wireshark or any network analyzer. To streamline the analysis process and save storage space, hardware filters help you capture only the data you need.

The ProfiShark series includes other essential features, such as packet slicing, statistics, configuration options, and high-performance capture to disk, through our own ProfiShark Manager application.

PROFISHARK 10G+ 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.

CONFIGURABLE HARDWARE FEATURES

Slicing and filters (Packet Type, MAC, IP, Protocol, Ports, and string matching) are hardware features, operating at wire-speed (20Gbps) regardless of packet rate.

GET THE TIMESTAMP ACCURACY YOU NEED

Accurate timestamping is essential for the analysis of performance metrics like TCP flow throughput, delay and jitter. ProfiShark offers models with down to 5ns hardware timestamping, and advanced GPS/PPS timestamping features on the + models.

HOW IT WORKS:

 

STRAIGHTFORWARD SETUP AND MANAGEMENT

Place ProfiShark in the line of the packets you want to analyze and use the ProfiShark Manager GUI to control hardware and packet capture settings.

CAPTURE HIGH FIDELITY NETWORK TRAFFIC

Capture traffic data with high quality timestamping, regardless of packet load. This data is captured with no effect on traffic stack. Monitoring can be done on copper or fiber networks.

MULTIPLE TRAFFIC CAPTURE OPTIONS AVAILABLE

Start capture directly to disk without the need for external software, Live capture in Wireshark, Long-term traffic capture on NAS.

WIDE OS SUPPORT

ProfiShark is supported on the main OS choices on the market today: Linux, Windows and macOS.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:

 

DEPLOY IN-LINE OR OUT-OF-BAND

ProfiShark 10G+ models can be configured in either in-line mode or as out-of-band, monitoring traffic from SPAN/mirror ports or external TAPs.

COMPATIBLE WITH MANY PROTOCOL ANALYZERS

ProfiShark is often used in combination with Wireshark for protocol analysis, but can be combined with most traffic analyzers.

PHYSICAL ISOLATION

The monitored network is physically isolated (diode) from the host, to avoid any risk of injection or MITM attack through the device.

FLEXIBLE POWERING OPTIONS

ProfiShark can be powered from a USB 3 port, or a 5V DC input.

Long-Term Traffic Capture

The ProfiShark long-term capture solution is designed with flexibility in mind. Combined with a NAS for storage tailored to your specific needs, the long-term capture feature makes it easy to catch intermittent problems in the act.

Benefits:

  • Ringbuffer or normal capture mode
  • Split capture to different files, based on time or size
  • Compatible with all Intel-based Synology NAS systems

Testimonial

By using the ProfiShark to go in and capture on both sides of a device we are able to determine exactly how much latency that device is adding, and we can then determine if that device is part of the problem or not.
