LISA 2000 Abstract

Wide Area Network Packet Capture and Analysis

Jon Meek, American Home Products Corp.


We describe a system to record and analyze ``raw'' Frame Relay and point-to-point T-1 packets. The data are captured by ``eavesdropping'' on the HDLC transmit and receive lines between the router and CSU/DSU. Analysis of the data provides circuit and application utilization information on a one-second or shorter time scale. Routine and custom reports are accessible through Web interfaces to provide easy access by our global systems and network staff. The packet data can also be used to debug applications in the same way as conventional packet capture systems.
