Network Instruments Announces GigaStor Network Analysis Appliance
New retrospective network analysis (RNA) device saves traffic to disk at full line rate on full-duplex 10 Gb links.
Network Instruments has announced its GigaStor 10 Gb Wire Speed (WS) appliance has been independently-verified of saving traffic to disk at full line rate on full-duplex 10 Gb links. As noted in this news release on PR Newswire, analysis solutions like the GigaStor 10 Gb WS ensure monitoring accuracy and verify performance of high-throughput networks.
"Extensive performance evaluation by the network equipment testing firm Tolly Group confirmed the GigaStor 10 Gb WS captured and wrote to disk at line-rate, bidirectional 10 Gb network traffic with zero frame loss.
"'Connected to a traffic generator, GigaStor handled wire-speed traffic of varying packet sizes across a 10 Gb, full-duplex network connection for multiple hours,' said John Tolly, research engineer for the Tolly Group. 'During this test we generated two separate streams, totaling 20 Gbps of sustained traffic, and confirmed the system captured and saved to disk without packet loss.'"
