Key differences between packet capture and real time stream analysis

Network administrators rely on network traffic analysis to troubleshoot complex problems and specifically performance degradations. The usefulness of network analysis solutions is obvious to all of them. 

The main question raised by most network teams is how fast can we get to the root cause and which tools can really help us.

6 reasons to take a new approach to packet capture

Traditionally network administrators have learnt to use packet analysis for troubleshooting complex problems. Some invested in expensive traffic capture appliance to capture and retain the traffic for later analysis; in case they get reports for a performance degradation, they can extract trace files and load them into a network analyzer (Wireshark or commercial) and look at packets.

How to measure network performance through passive traffic analysis

Whichever tool you use it is important to  understand the fundamentals of how network performance metrics (like latency, packet loss or throughput) can be calculated.This calculation can be manual with Wireshark or any other packet analyzer or automated with the NPM solution of your choice.
