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
