A 10GE Monitoring System

Abstract

Capturing network packets is a valuable technique for troubleshooting network problems. Especially when the troubleshooter has to deal with network elements that are not under his or her control. Capturing at wire speeds up to one gigabit per second is feasible with fast general-purpose computer hardware. But that hardware is too slow for ten gigabit per second ethernet (10GE). Specialised hardware is required for that. This paper describes the modification of a commercially available 10GE networks security system, into a network analyser.
