Hello,

Looking for protocol analyzer idea/suggestion for a large LAN network.

We currently have Fluke along with PE.

Most of their Link Analyzers will be end of life, end of support soon.

Thanks

Hi,


If your are concern only for protocol analyser in LAN then Sniffer pro tool is good which sniff the lan traffic along with great details of protocol in each frame and if you are concern is for link utilization and up down messages then PRTG or MRTG are good for monitoring WAN links.


Hope that help
