Quick Guide

Napatech Link™ Capture Software with Intel® PAC A10 GX passively captures traffic on a network, and uses a mirror port or span port to connect to the network. This ensures that the solution can provide zero packet loss, and is not detectable on the network. As such, Napatech Link™ Capture Software with Intel® PAC A10 GX does not show up as a standard network interface when you run network tools such as ifconfig or ip.

Features of Napatech Link™ Capture Software with Intel® PAC A10 GX

The feature set offloads processing and analysis of Ethernet data from application software while ensuring optimal use of standard server resources, leading to effective application acceleration. Capabilities include:
  • Full line-rate packet capture and transmit
  • Optimized packet buffers to minimize CPU load on the host server
  • Onboard packet buffering to ensure packet delivery during congestion
  • HW time-stamping with 1 ns time stamp resolution
