To answer the questions in the packet challenge, participants need to have the confidence that the trace files represent the truth of the network event. If a trace file is not captured well, it can show missing data and inaccurate timers which make the data harder to read. Precious time can be spent in chasing down false alarms rather than focusing on the real problem.
In many ways, the packet challenge represents the scenario that many engineers face every day. The network has problems, answers need to be found, and time is of the essence. Accurate data can mean the difference between getting to root cause, or spinning our wheels on a false symptom. This blog article covers several of these symptoms and shows how poor capture methods impact the data in the trace file.
Going to Sharkfest? We will see you at the packet challenge, along with Chris Bihary, CEO/Co-Founder of Garland Technology. It will be a great time!
Not going to Sharkfest? We will get some of the session videos out on LoveMyTool. Maybe next year you can join us for another packet challenge!
Chris focuses on assisting IT professionals in resolving the root cause of network and application performance problems. This is primarily done through use of a protocol analyzer reading and interpreting trace files. Additionally, I teach courses in network analysis and troubleshooting, Wireshark, and several vendor analysis products. Chris supports clients in several regions of the USA, Latin America, and Caribbean.
