Testing LAN Performance
Joe Bardwell mentioned a few products at his Wildpackets seminar last week. One was Spirent Communications performance analysis products. For example, to test LAN performance, you might look at SmartBits Ethernet Modules. Joe also talked about NetScout LAN Probes. These might make good collection platforms, although they are more for performance issues and less for security or traffic collection like a Sandstorm NetIntercept.
