We very intermittently see where devices on the network seem to be starved for network bandwidth. We're looking for a fairly inexpensive piece of equipment that we can attach to the switch at several retail locations that will capture a couple hours worth of IP packets for troubleshooting. Any suggestions other than a sniffer (the one we have doesn't keep enough history based on the IP traffic volume) - Thanks
Yes it will. The cool thing about them too is you could leave it in place and throttle the application down to use, lets say 25% of the bandwidth, and that's all they get. I think they are pricey, but you might be able to work with a vendor/reseller and they can do a network assesment for you (that way you don't have to buy the box).
