Everything You Need To Know About Deep Packet Inspection

Servers, Storage and Networking | Posted on November 11, 2014

In our recent post How to Guard Against The #1 Productivity Killer In Workplaces, we introduced a topic that’s near and dear to the heart of any IT manager or system administrator: Network Performance issues. We also discussed why Softchoice likes SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, the solution to this problem.

We also introduced you to Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), a technology used to capture and analyze network packets as they pass through routers and other devices on your network, filtering the data to give you deeper information about the status of your network on a moment-to-moment basis.

How do you configure Deep Packet Inspection (and why is it important?)

Softchoice has you covered! Watch SolarWinds Lab video #16, where the geeks reveal all the details of how DPI is integrated in NPM, what it measures and of course, how to configure it for both spanning and individual server data collection.

If you’re interested in learning more about Deep Packet Inspect and its analysis or would like a quick demo, connect with the Softchoice SolarWinds team.
