Original Entry by : Endace

The new DAG 5.5.0 software release is available with some exciting and innovative new features:

One of our customers said that once. And he was right.

So with DAG 5.5.0 we’re introducing a revolutionary new capability. Now you can add “Provenance” smart-data fields to your capture files and streams to provide full, contextual information about where the packets were captured and what the environment was like at the time.

When accurate timing is everything

PTP Timing WhitepaperFor many organizations, highly accurate timing is critical to providing accurate audit trails, allowing accurate reconstruction of events for security
forensics or troubleshooting microburst performance issues.

Endace CTO, Dr. Stephen Donnelly, has put together a whitepaper based on the presentation which he and Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson, presented at STAC conferences in London, Chicago and New York recently, which looks at the accuracy of PTP (IEEE 1588) timing in a live High Frequency Trading (HFT) WAN environment.

MiFID II, Timing and STAC

Original Entry by : Endace

For high frequency traders (HFTs), complying with new obligations that will come into force under MiFID II, and proving compliance, will pose some significant technical challenges.

Stephen Donnelly, Endace’s CTO, gave a presentation comparing GPS and PTP timing accuracy at the STAC Summit in London (May 10) and he will also be presenting at STAC Chicago (May 17). Endace’s CEO, Stu Wilson, will present at the STAC Summit in New York (June 13).

Stephen also attended STAC’s Essentials of MiFID 2 Time Compliance workshop in London on Monday. This workshop was an excellent opportunity for HFTs to get up-to-speed with what the new MiFID II requirements mean for their organizations and how to prepare for them. More on what came out of this in our next newsletter.

We’re looking forward to the opportunity to catch up with our HFT customers at all three STAC events. If you haven’t yet registered for STAC Chicago or New York but are interested in attending, let us know.

Finding session-related problems using EndaceVision

Original Entry by : Endace

Network monitoring tends to focus heavily on bandwidth, addressing the question, “Do I have the capacity to carry the traffic that my business requires?” Capacity, however, must include session count and lifecycle, which are often overlooked until they become a problem. That’s why EndaceVisionTM 6.0 Network Visibility Software has added two new tools to deal with sessions: TCP Flags view and client/server breakdown.

Improving network monitoring performance with the next generation EndaceProbes

Original Entry by : Erez Birenzwig

When the current EndaceProbe® Network Recorder product range was introduced more than five years ago, most enterprise networks were only starting to think about upgrading to 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) speeds.  Since then, most IT departments use 10GbE in their core, 1GbE to the desktop and laptop has become standard, and many are organizations are looking to move up to 25GbE, 40GbE or higher speeds.  At the time, EndaceProbes were the highest performing and most reliable network packet capture device available, helping our customers migrate their monitoring from 1GbE to 10GbE.  In the same way that we enabled that migration, we are now introducing the next generation of network recording products as enterprises incorporate higher network speeds.
