Packet storage and recall
As Trisul meters network traffic, it continuously saves raw packets for future analysis.The ability to call upon raw packets, or full content, is key to the practice of Network Security Monitoring. Raw packets is not just useful for security applications but also for network performance troubleshooting. For example, you can pull up ARP/Spanning Tree packets which can help you nail a layer 2 issue.Packet Capture Basics describes the design of in greater detail.
Optimized packet storage requirements
One of the major challenges of real time packet storage is concerns about the disk throughput and storage requirements when handling busy links. Make use of Trisul’s sophisticated techniques to dramatically reduce the packets you need to store. Using the Trisul LUA API you can even control packet storage policy at a granularity of flow.
