A 10GE monitoring system

Arien Vijn

Capturing network packets is a valuable technique for troubleshooting network problems. Capturing at network speeds less, or up to one gigabit per second is feasible with a fast general purpose computer hardware.

But that hardware is to slow for Ten gigabit per second ethernet (10GE). Hence, special hardware is required.

This topic describes the modification of a commercially available 10GE networks security system, into a network analyser.
