SolarCapture™ Innovative Packet Capture Software Family

SolarCapture™ is powerful packet capture product family that can transform every server into a precision network monitoring device, increasing network visibility, network instrumentation, and performance analysis. SolarCapture products optimize network monitoring and security, while eliminating the need for specialized appliances, expensive adapters relying on exotic protocols, proprietary hardware, and dedicated networking equipment.

SolarCapture

SolarCapture works with any Solarflare OpenOnload-enabled adapter, to capture packets received on a port at the highest rates, assign timestamps, and either writes packets to a capture file in PCAP format or forward packets to user-supplied code for further processing.

SolarCapture Pro

SolarCapture Pro enables any OpenOnload-enabled Flareon adapter with hardware time stamping to precisely capture packets in real-time, perform IEEE1588 (PTP) time synchronization, and accelerate applications, providing the essential ingredient in the corporate data center for network monitoring and analysis, regulatory compliance, and network security.

AOE SolarCapture Pro

AOE SolarCapture Pro enables any ApplicationOnload Engine (AOE) to capture & time stamp packets in hardware in real-time, perform IEEE1588 (PTP) time synchronization, and accelerate applications, while providing 100% lossless packet capture for network monitoring and analysis, regulatory compliance, and network security.

SolarCapture family products enable a higher level of packet capture performance by delivering packets directly to user space, bypassing the network stack and the OS kernel. SolarCapture family products provides efficient CPU utilization by spreading packet capture streams over multiple CPU cores using receive-side scaling (RSS), while optimizing performance by assigning packet capture and packet processing threads to specific CPU cores.
