LAN Protocol Analyzer & Traffic Monitor
Triticom adds a new term to the LAN administrators vocabulary:
LANdecoder32 noun: 1. a protocol analyzer designed for Windows containing capabilities to not only perform protocol analysis, but also to monitor traffic, 2. software that can operate on Ethernet (10 Mbps and 100 Mbps) and Token-Ring (4 Mbps and 16 Mbps) networks, 3. technology that provides state-of-the-art on-line help with protocol examples; verb: 1. analyzes custom decodes and over 120 protocols that use either local network attachment or distributed RMON probe technology, 2. provides expert analysis of your network, 3. traps user set exceptions and thresholds; adj: 1. THE VERY BEST!
Local: Collect statistics and frames from the network to which the LANdecoder32 is attached. There are two separate methods to perform local monitoring/analysis: Microsofts NDIS drivers and Triticoms AccuCapture Drivers. The NDIS drivers allow you to use the same adapter simultaneously for network monitoring operations while talking with file servers, other workgroup computers, and even remote RMON probes. For maximum performance and high-fidelity error and statistic reporting, we recommend installing a supported adapter which is dedicated to LANdecoder32 using the AccuCapture Driver.Triticom designed its direct-to-the-adapter AccuCapture Drivers with the sole purpose of streamlining and optimizing Ethernet network monitoring and frame capture under Windows 9X. Full support is provided for Win 2000, CardBus cards including Plug-and-Play.
Remote: Collect statistics and frames from any industry standard RMON probes attached to the network. LANdecoder32 maintainscommunications with the RMON probe so that network statistics can be updated and viewed on your computer.
PROTOCOL DECODES WITH "EXPERT ANALYSIS"
Integrating technology from our other award-winning products, LANdecoder32 contains detailed 7-layer OSI, color-coded decodes. Expert analysis is focused on TCP connection, IP addressing, NCP transactions, and IPX addressing problems. A comprehensive list of filters and triggers is available for pre-packet and post-packet capture analysis. These include frame content, station, pattern, protocol, hex, and ASCII filters. Filters can be easily configured using LANdecoder32s drag and drop support. Sources/Destinations/Conversations windows operate at IP and IPX as well as at the MAC level. An SNMP decode structure fully decodes over 1,000 SNMP objects. Included in this release are new protocol decodes for 802.11/WiFi, 802.1q, ICQ, and IPsec along with enhanced protocol decodes for DHCP, BOOTP, ARP, DNS and SNMP.
Supports web-based trace viewing via a Java-based client running in the host machine. This allows remote users to view captured data over the WWW.
LANdecoder32 features sophisticated traffic monitoring functions on top of the excellent protocol decodes. A robust set of reports can be generated at user-specified time intervals and exported and studied in popular spreadsheet applications. Several real-time displays, graphs, and network alarms can be configured. Additionally, remote alarm notification via pager or e-mail is available. Alarm messages and notifications are now time-stamped and logged.
VIEW NETWORK HEALTH STATISTICS VIA WEB BROWSER By properly configuring a WWW server, and then saving Web Export reports to that server, network statistics may be viewed using a Web browser. This is accomplished using Triticoms WWW Report Viewer HTML pages and Java applets, which are included with LANdecoder32. FRAME TRANSMITTER Define a frame to be transmitted one or more times over the network. This is especially useful for inducing traffic loads on the LAN in order to check performance and error levels. The frame contents can be specified using LANdecoder32s drag and drop features. ADDITIONAL DRIVER SUPPORT INFORMATION NDIS is supported transparently by dynamic loading of adapter drivers as required. No special configuration or installation steps are required, and no knowledge of adapter hardware settings and resources is needed. Triticoms AccuCapture Drivers provide benefits over NDIS drivers that are summarized below:
LANdecoder32s on-line help system sets the standard for state-of-the-art protocol analyzer help systems. Each decoded protocol has available (by simply pressing F1) an explanation of the protocol, an example of the protocol decode, and a detailed explanation of the protocol fields and their allowable values.
DESIGNED FOR WINDOWS 9X/2000/XP
Triticom has chosen the advanced Windows operating system from Microsoft as its network management platform. The reason for this choice is simple economics. Instead of the high cost management platforms promoted by competitors such as HP and IBM, Windows 9X/2000/XP is readily available and convenient to use. This means managing your network does not require that you first learn a "platform" and then learn to operate your management system or protocol analyzer. Further, in many cases using our competitors productssuch as OpenView, NetView, or SystemViewyour total solution cost is dominated by the platform cost rather than the management application cost.
Complex networks require flexible tools. A wide variety of network interfacing options are critical for monitoring and management products. LANdecoder32 supports two distinct ways to monitor traffic and protocols on a network segment: remote and local. Further, LANdecoder32 supports multiple local interfaces.
You can count on Triticom to deliver high-performance, high-function, low-cost network management solutions. In addition, Triticom products are all available individually. You only buy what you need today.
