Parallelizing FlowView: Performance Improvements
by Debojit Dhar on

FlowView provides detailed insight into the applications on one’s network, but to achieve this, we need to store a lot of data.

How to Easily Capture TCP Conversation Streams
by Team AppNeta on

When verifying that FlowView is identifying flows with the correct application, we use tcpreplay to send traffic from packet capture files into an appliance capture interface. The packet captures can be homemade by us or from our customers. These packet captures are typically recorded without filtering, so naturally they will contain extraneous protocols and many mid-conversation sessions that happened to...

How to Troubleshoot Video Conferencing Drops
by Team AppNeta on

A video conferencing partner of ours asked for help with a high-profile technology customer recently. The vendor’s gear was being blamed for frequent video conferencing session drops. This was causing friction between vendor and the customer’s network team, and pressure on the IT manager was mounting to fix the issue at all costs.

Before business productivity became dependent on the Internet, smaller companies didn’t spend money on flow analysis data. Even enterprise companies didn’t invest in expensive network hardware capable of delivering flow information at the scattered remote offices.
