Passive Network Monitoring

SLAC Home Page

Introduction

The active (ie intrusive) performance monitoring conducted by PingER and other monitoring projects at SLAC would be well complemented (see Passive vs. active monitoring) with an understanding of passive monitoring, that is genuine user traffic as it comes in and goes out of the SLAC DMZ. Unfortunately, the SLAC LAN-Analyser Netscout does not provide sufficient information to be useful (although netscout may have other products), so we would like to explore other methodologies.
