Getting to the root cause of application problems quickly is key to reducing the impact they have on business operations. While traditional protocol analyzers like Wireshark are useful for capturing packets and performing basic analysis on the lower layers, they fail to provide the view into the application layer. Application-centric analyzers like Fluke Networks ClearSight Analyzer take a top-down approach to resolving application problems.
In this whitepaper, we compare 6 key protocol analysis features looking at Wireshark and Fluke Networks ClearSight Analyzer, and how the two can be used together to maximize the value of each, and make the network support staff more efficient when troubleshooting performance problems.
