ProfiShark 1G is a handheld plug and play device dedicated to Gigabit Ethernet monitoring. It facilitates field traffic capture and troubleshooting. It is equivalent to a 10/100/1G aggregator tap and two 1 Gbps NICs. All-in-one in a pocket-sized box, the only additional hardware required being a laptop or desktop PC with a free USB 3.0 port. Based on USB 3.0 (5 Gbps), the ProfiShark 1G manages full-duplex Gigabit at wirespeed, without the bottleneck of an aggregator tap. It also surpasses all standard NICs in capture mode, as it catches any tag and encapsulation without altering the frames. ProfiShark 1G is the perfect tool for the field engineer as well as for long-term traffic collection.
ProfiShark enables complete data capture in a portable form factor. This means you can deploy rapidly anywhere, and capture the traffic data you need, with no performance impact on your production network.
To help optimize your analysis workflow and consume less disk storage, ProfiShark offers packet slicing capabilities, making sure you only get actionable data.
Capture network data without impacting security or performance. The ProfiShark and host PC will not show up as a node on the network. Network connection is maintained, even when power to the ProfiShark is lost. ProfitShark is set up to passthrough PoE.
Accurate timestamping is essential for the analysis of performance metrics like TCP flow throughput, delay and jitter. ProfiShark 1G provides hardware timestamping with 8 ns accuracy.
ProfiShark can be powered from a USB 3 port, or a 5V DC input.
ProfiShark is supported on the main OS choices on the market today: Linux, Windows and macOS.
The ProfiShark Manager GUI us used to control hardware and packet capture settings.
