Network traffic monitor/analyzer stickie?

Q: Network traffic monitor/analyzer stickie?

My network seems to be slowing way down. I have basic networking knowledge and moderate Server knowledge. I, however, do not have very good analyzer skills.

Just like how we have an awsome sticky on RAID, I was wondering if we could have one on analyzing tools.

Personally I am looking for something either built into Server 2003, downloadable form Microsoft, or even free or expensive software that lets me monitor my network for traffic problems.

I am getting lots of users who are connected to a database on our server, and about every 5 minutes it looses the connection. I am trying to track the problem and don't know where to start.

Preferred Solution: Network traffic monitor/analyzer stickie?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I'm looking for a good network analyzer software that allows me to monitor the network. maybe have some features on discovering devices, ports, bandwidth in a certain amount of time, etc. Thanks.

A:network traffic analyzer

That would depend on the network topology. Any global network monitoring will have to be done with access to a common point where all the traffic converges. Addressed traffic between workstations will go directly between them via any switches and gateways in the path, so you can't do this with just a workstation.

Is there a good network traffic/broadband monitor that actually keeps track of ALL (really ALL) traffic in a network?
I have used quite a few (eg, Ethereal, ntop, network probe) but all of them kinda keep track of only traffic that is coming in and out of the PC they are run from.

I need one that really tracks every single transaction that goes on in the network, including PCs talking to PCs, PCs talking to servers, servers talking to PCs, PCs talking to printers, etc.

Would help a great deal if they are FREE too!

Anyone know of any good ones?

My application does not have any network-like implementation except FlexNet Publisher for licensing. I expect it should connect only to license server.

When I use Microsoft Network Monitor then it shows only connections from/to my application and license server.

When I use Microsoft Message Analyzer then it shows enormous additional traffic for my application which I cannot explain. For example many events' source and destination do not match my local machine (BRWS/DNS/UDP modules), so it seems that my application
is kind of proxy (?) for them. Can anyone give some hints how to interpret Message Analyzer data, please?

Hello, This is my first post and to be a bit of an ignorant so and so I am stragith away jumping into asking a bone question. My apologies for taking advantage of your good nature like this.

My question is; I wish to monitor the traffic on a network card on a Vista computer as I am trying to figure out why an anti virus software is not running. I need to be able to see the messages that the AV update is giving out, i.e. requesting update from ... listening on port .... nothing heard ....

I keep getting this alert despite the amount of resources that I add to my Gateway.  
Our DC and Gateway are running virtually in VMware.  Distributed Virtual Switches are not an option so I have to resort to configuring Promiscuous Port Group.  
I configured a Promiscuous Port Group on the same Virtual Switch that the DC (and the rest of our servers) is connected , and assigned it the same VLAN ID as the DC. 
ATA is capturing and reporting traffic but I continually receive an alert for some network traffic is not being analyzed.  I have thrown double the resources at our Gateway's
than what the sizing tool identified, and still receive this alert.  At this point I have 24GB of RAM and 10 Cores allocated to my Gateway which is only capturing reporting on 1 DC.  At this point I am about ready to scrap ATA because of how resource
intense it is.  
Any ideas or suggestions?  Does it sound like I have the Promiscuous Port Group configured correctly, or is it possible that I am capturing ALL traffic for the VLAN assigned?

I've used Message Analyzer in the past to decrypt HTTPS traffic after importing the certificate used by the web server and it was a tremendous improvement over Netmon & NMDecrypt.    I'm looking at a trace I took of LDAPS traffic (TCP.port==636)
and the traffic after the SSL handshake Message Analyzer is not decrypting the traffic.   

Is the decryption sub-routines in Message Analyzer only supposed to work with HTTPS traffic, or should we be expecting to see success on LDAPS traffic as well?

Message Analyzer has not had any significant updates (apart from minor parser updates) for some time. The mechanism that out-of-the-box Message Analyzer uses to decrypt
TLS is based on access to the server certificate private key (and therefore does not work with ephemeral session keys). Since Message Analyzer is very flexible and configurable, I wanted to check whether it could be adapted to use SSLKEYLOGFILE information
and indeed the answer is yes.
The OPN programming language is Turing complete, but it would not be an ideal choice for implementing all of the necessary cryptographic routines that are needed for
this task ? it would be better to use existing cryptographic libraries. Fortunately OPN does include a mechanism for calling external routines ? the ?Handcoded? declaration:
binary DecryptData(string suite, byte ct, array<byte> ver, binary data, array<byte> key, array<byte> salt, ref array<byte>
iv, long ctr, out bool ok) with DeclarationInfo { Handcoded = true };
One simple way of using this is to place the ?Handcoded? definitions in a small OPN ?module?. The OPN has to be included as a resource in the DLL built from the ?Handcoded?
implementation. The resource is located by means of a .NET assembly level attribute:
[assembly: ExtensionOpnModel("TLSex.opn", false)]
The exposed hand-coded routine also needs to be decorated with attributes (for the containing ... Read more

Dear all,
it should be possible to
"Capture firewall discard Events - This feature allows you to discover how the firewall is affecting network traffic.  New messages tell you when traffic is blocked and associated IDs point to the specific firewall rule responsible
for dropping the message."
Does anybody of you know a little bit more about how Message Analyzer has to be configured to show which rule blocks (in my case Outbound) traffic?
This would be a great improvement to the pfirewall.log, where this important information is missing...

I'm not sure if I'm trying to do the impossible but I'll explain the situation.

I have this roommate that is excessively consuming the majority of the networks bandwidth. I've blocked all service ports except for 443, 80, and a few other ones used for every day task. The problem is that he is still consuming a ton of bandwidth, I'm guessing by streaming or downloading through HTTP.

I have *two* WGR614v10 router, and a Realtek PCIe LAN card controller at my disposal. I attempted to set QoS settings on what we will call Base Router. That did not seem to do the trick because router QoS only blocks ports and slows upload speed. Since that did not work I hid the SSID/MAC filtered connections to the Base Router and then connected my computer to the Base Router and rebroadcasted the signal using a Secondary Router using a shared connection, which I gave him access to. The point of this was an attempt to control bandwidth through the Realtek LAN card; I am not having any luck with this though. I've set the adapter to 10Mbps at half duplex already.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can look into for limiting bandwidth? I want him to have Internet but not abuse it like he's doing because that is not what we agreed upon.

A:How to limit network traffic speeds with a network card?

If you want to solve the issue using your existing equipment, you can try dd-wrt on one WGR614v10. See this thread (DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - WGR614v10 Support - Jump to post 9) which claims that there is a dd-wrt flash for WNR1000v3 which works on WGR614v10. Then look a thread like this (DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - Steps for Permanently limit Bandwidth of a PC using DD-WRT ?) to setup the limits. You can start a new thread in those forums if you want someone to walk you thru the steps.

Or you can just buy a router/access point that has a bandwidth limiting feature for each SSID that it broadcasts.

Ethereal: A Network Protocol Analyzer

Above is a link to ethereal. It is an excellent tool to analyze the packets sent and received by your machine. It is very interesting to look at and extremely helpful to diagnosis of problems in general.

There is a slight learning curve for how to use it well. But if you are of the type that would be interested in this kind of thing, I trust you are also of the type that can use it well.

For instance, you can see all the traffic on your local lan and what your computers are saying to each other. You can see how your router calls out to your machines to ensure they are still on the network. Lots of other cool things.

You can see when you start up certain software that they are trying to "call home" which many people find they do not like at all.

Play around with it some and you may be glad you have a new tool at your disposal. You could use it to capture all packets sent and received, for many different purposes, from any specific adapter. Perhaps you want to see what your computers are doing while you away or while another is using? Alright, that's a little shady though, heh heh.

Well you can always download a network monitor...I suggest Nework Monitor v3.1 because it is straight from Microsoft, though there are many other free network monitors available over the internet.

Alternatively, you can use the netstat command to see all open connections. The downside to netstat is it will not tell you which connection is using the majority of the bandwidth.

Hi guys,

Does someone know of a program or application that allows you to monitor what traffic is going in/out the lan connection to adsl modem. I would like to be able to see what files are being transmitted or received, where they are going or where they are being read from on the HD. I know there are programs that allow you to see how many bytes are being moved but I would like to know the names and locations of the files.


A:Monitor traffic going in/out lan connection.

Traffic on the wire and the (possibly) related files on the hard drive have absolutely nothing to do with each other. If that is what you wanted to do, you would have to monitor which processes on a target machine are opening sockets, and of those that are, what files they are opening. I don't know of anything offhand that does that.

The traffic is easy enough to monitor with Wireshark or tcpdump for those who like the nitty gritty.

Any recommendation for a Network Bandwidth analyzer? I would like to find out who's using up all of the bandwidth in our network, from internet radio to gaming.

A:Network Bandwidth Analyzer or Logging

You can download wireshark. It is probably the best freeware network traffic analyzer.I

t will analyze all network traffic and the captured data can be filtered. It is fairly straightforward. Once you have got the hang, take a look around the options and you can graph captured traffic by endpoint IP, mac or by protocol, as well as top talkers. There are loads of tutorials freely available.

Wireshark has an impact on the network performance so it is best to choose a time when everyone is online and grab short captures - <5 minutes at intervals over a peak traffic hour. Don't leave it running indefinitely as the capture files get huge.

Hello everyone, on behalf of my company I am looking for a small-medium business level upgraded solution for security and management. This is both to increase our service response time and verify we are fully regulation compliant, especially through HIPAA as we have a lot of medical clients. I am on a reasonably tight budget, and have surpassed some of the larger enterprise solutions that are highly rated such as SolarWinds and WhatsUp Gold. No matter how we swing it, $4000-$5000 dollars each for a Log Manager and a Network Monitor is just too much to justify charging for each of our small business clients separately.

Some of the aspects that we need to have covered are:
1... Immediate alert on power failures or shutdown devices
2... Alert when there have been a set number of unsuccessful logon attempts to a server in a set time period.
3... When a system is running low on disk space
4... When there is a CPU spike in processing power.
5... When there is a bandwidth spike, and what user/machine is sucking all the bandwidth up.
6... Firewall monitoring for what ports and ips run through it and say if someone tries to access a port and it gets blocked, instant notification.
7... When a machine has not been logged off the server after a set period of inactivity

A:What HIPAA compliant security suite? (Log manager, firewall analyzer and/or monitor)?

HIPAA compliance is a serious matter and although some vendors claim their products to be, we have no way of knowing if they actually do meet the government requirements so it would be impossible for us to advise on this issue. Therefore, I think it's best that you continue to do your own research on this and then check with the governing body that oversees HIPAA to make sure that you are meeting their requirements for compliance in order to avoid any confusion.

However, this issue also pops up with the internal WLAN as well. From what I can tell, this issue started around the time our MSP installed their antivirus and anti-malware on all the machines including the servers. They also turned on the content filtering to restrict malware. Another thing is our office has maxed out on the voltage, I'm not sure if that's related to this issue. I thought I'd mention it.

I've used Wireshark before and possibly Solarwinds. I haven't used any of the others, so I can't comment on them.

Based on what I've seen from the programs I've used, even with the simplest network analyzer, you are still going to need to have a good understanding of networking. Otherwise, the tool won't be able to help you. This will require you to have the knowledge to analyze these packets yourself. The software will capture them, but it's still just a tool to aid you.

It can't hurt to try a free program (such as Wireshark), create a capture of when the network is running slow, and then analyze the capture yourself. If you can't find anything that would suggest an issue, you can always upload the capture to this site or any other site and have other people help you analyze it.
