Full Visibility into 1G/10G Copper and Fiber Networks
ProfiShark 10G is a powerful, versatile portable network TAP. It is designed to enable field engineers to quickly get in the path of network packets and capture high fidelity traffic data for monitoring purposes, as well as long-term traffic collection.
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.
DEPLOY IN-LINE OR OUT-OF-BAND
ProfiShark 10G 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.
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.

I find that a portable in-line TAP like the ProfiShark series can be a useful troubleshooting tool generally – easy to insert in between a desktop station and its network jack, grab a pcap, and see what it is happening!
