Breaking the capture-wait-watch cycle
All too often free network analysis tools require the ongoing analysis to be stopped in order to be able to change what is being looked at. Thankfully this isn't the case with OmniPeek Personal which allows for filters to be created (using a simple make filter command) and applied immediately, on the fly, without the hassle of stopping and starting packet captures: something that really should not be undervalued.
Creating filters is as easy as applying them, without interruption to the ongoing analysis
Nor should the 'select related' function be undervalued, which can select packets relevant only to a particular node, protocol or conversation with just a single mouse click. Compare and contrast to the multiple steps required to achieve the same type of operation in other analysers, and witness the amount of time saved when finding and fixing problems courtesy of the OmniPeek Personal approach.
Indeed, it is the real-time troubleshooting that impresses most: with OmniPeek Personal claiming the unique feature of being able to offer both expert diagnostics and frame decoding during capture, in real-time. By collecting network traffic into conversations, which are then aggregated by application and rated for user satisfaction, OmniPeek Personal can combine these with accurate response time analysis to give a truly remarkable level of application analysis.
This application view then enables end user satisfaction and network application performance to be linked through Apdex (Application Performance Index) for open standard reporting. Real time statistical support is just as impressive, and along with the historical performance data capture function make it very easy to very quickly determine chatty protocols, talkative nodes or router performance during busy periods for example.
