For years, Wireshark has been the “killer app” for network troubleshooting. It still is a key tool in both infrastructure-based networking, as well as security. Networks have fundamentally changed with the advent of the cloud, software-defined networking (SDN), and the Internet of Things (IoT). We’ve seen a lot of sea changes going on in the world of networking. Are your Wireshark skills still strong enough to catch the big fish?
Though most IT pros can catch a packet with Wireshark, only a few seem to kind of, well, drift along in a sea of confusion about what comes next. In the next Office Hours with James, join Dr. James Stanger to learn more about network troubleshooting techniques. We’ll discuss how to create useful, more advanced filters and how to use Wireshark’s diagnostic tools. We’ll also look into few complementary tools, including iftop, nload, netperf, VnStat, DarkStat and others.
So, take the time to join James and learn about the essential techniques, tools and approaches to capture, visualize and act on essential network information.
