Group Packet Competition at Sharkfest Europe 2017

on 11/2/17 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Wireshark Network TAPs Events & News
Sharkfest Europe is back for a second year, and Garland Technology is continuing our support of the Wireshark community by sponsoring this year’s Group Packet Competition. While Sharkfest is well established in the US as the premier educational conference for Wireshark users to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices, over in Europe, the conference is still in its early years. At Sharkfest, the Group Packet Competition is designed to bring teams of Wireshark users together. Each team is given a group of trace files and a sheet of questions. Then, they are challenged to race against the clock to find the answers, often using areas of Wireshark they aren’t familiar with. The Competition is a great way to teach users of all different skill levels new tricks about the analyzer in a fun environment.

Visibility by Design for Application/Network Performance Monitoring and Security

We recently formalized a technology partnership with Savvius, a company I’ve been working with since early in my career when they were called WildPackets. The Savvius and Garland Technology partnership adds value to companies deploying the Savvius Omnipeek, Spotlight or Omnipliance APM/NPM solutions. In today’s enterprise networks and data centers, IT professionals need visibility and access to the data anytime, from anywhere to perform real-time monitoring and analysis of application and network behavior. As well as the often overlooked scenario - delayed analysis. Let’s dive into the new Savvius and Garland joint solution, case study and learn more about our upcoming webinar.

Packet Challenge at Sharkfest - A Great Way to Test Your Skills!

on 6/20/17 8:00 AM By | Chris Greer | 0 Comments | Wireshark Events & News Network TAPs
This year at Sharkfest, Garland Technology is sponsoring the group packet challenge (Thank you!). As packet-heads, we all enjoy digging through trace files and finding the hidden gems that lead to resolving a problem. If most of our capturing experience is from a single network or enterprise, it can be hard to grow in new areas and pick up new tricks in packet analysis. Sharkfest is an excellent way to hone our skills and bring our art of analysis to a new level. The group packet challenge at Sharkfest is designed to bring together Wireshark users from all skill levels in a timed team event. Participants are given several trace files and a question sheet, then as a team they race to find the answers. Typically, the packet challenge will require them to use areas of Wireshark that they may not be as familiar with, which can teach them new things about the analyzer in a fun setting.

[New Product] Garland Introduces Scalable Visibility with Passive Fiber Modular Chassis up to 100G

“How do you scale your network infrastructure to support multiple monitoring tools (at varying network speeds) without adding additional infrastructure - while still ensuring data quality?” This is the problem we have been hearing in the last few years. Data centers (D1 & D2) and enterprise networks have many challenges and two of the big ones are providing the IT department anytime access to full-duplex traffic, while guaranteeing full packet capture. Now layer on top of that a stack of 1G legacy monitoring tools in addition to the migration to 10G/40G and 100G speeds. To this problem, we introduce a solution: Garland Technology’s new Passive Fiber Modular Chassis. A flexible, scalable and affordable high density solution for managing up to 24 links in a 1U box at network speeds of 1G/10G/40G/100G.
