Albedo Net.Shark is an FPGA based Tap with hardware filtering capabilities capable of capturing GbE traffic at wire-speed. Running in pass-through mode all traffic is passed through the unit, traffic that matches user defined filters is passed to the monitoring ports or to the internal SD storage card.
The use of mirror ports on routers for monitoring applications can be unreliable, as it is not guaranteed that 100% of network traffic will be captured. Routers are primarily designed for routing tasks with the traffic mirroring functionality being assigned a low priority. With the Net.Shark you can guarantee that you can access the data that you want even at wire-speeds.
16 Hardware filters on Port A and Port B allow you to catch only the network traffic that you want to see even at line rates.
Net.Shark can operate as a network tap, traffic matching user defined filters can be stored or sent to mirror ports
