“GL’s FastRecorder™ and PacketExtractor™ is the ultimate packet capture and analysis tool for managing large and small-scale networks for lossless capture of high-speed IP traffic. FastRecorder™ and PacketExtractor™ applications work with GL’s network appliance PacketScan™ HD (or Wireshark®) packet analyzers. They support 2 x 100 GigE or 2 x 40 GigE or 4 x 10/25 GigE or 2 x 10/25 GigE or 2 x 1/10 GigE or 8 x 10 GigE or 4 x 1/10/25 GigE Ethernet Interfaces,” said Vijay Kulkarni, CEO of GL Communications.
FastRecorder™ is a dedicated application for easy interconnection to multiple interfaces, quick configuration, and subsequent continuous, error-free capture to a large disk (NVME SSDs) for long periods of time. Users can also define filters so that only packets of interest are captured. Users can also provide triggers to record the incoming traffic based on user-defined conditions.
PacketExtractor™ can then extract packets of interest, by defining complex filters, streams, periods, storage size, and even portions of packets, such as headers, and many other useful parameters for diagnosing problems. The extracted chunks/files can be in PCAP, PCAPNG, or HDL (GL’s proprietary) format for analysis.
PacketScan™ HD, with the FastRecorder™ and PacketExtractor™ applicatons, can come in either rackmount or portable (“lunchbox”) form factors. This makes it easy for engineers to deploy the solution in a lab environment or in the field.
