Analysing the characteristics of a specific Local Area Network (LAN) is important for several reasons. Administrators may need to keep track of inbound data packets as well as address multiple security issues within a real-time scenario. The hands-on functionality offered by CommView is highly functional and easy to work with. Whether employed to test a new firewall or to determine problems within a system this package is highly intuitive and effective.
Functions and Purposes
CommView acts as a centralised platform to view all network activity. Some metrics which are constantly analysed include the connections between local and remote IP addresses data sent and received ports host names and any processes that are running. Should a problem occur it can easily be identified and rectified. This is also very useful to prevent potential security breaches a priority for any business.
CommView provides users with several other features which should be mentioned here. A handful of examples include reconstructing TCP sessions searching for specific strings of hexadecimal data generating real-time traffic reports and even designing bespoke plug-ins intended for unique LAN purposes. There is also a dedicated version to be used within VoIP systems.
