Tag Archives: Eye P.A.
The latest build of Eye P.A. just hit the net today. Version 1.6 of MetaGeek’s visual packet analysis tool includes the great features Wi-Fi troubleshooters expect – interactive Treepies, time graph, and filtering engine – and a huge new enhancement you’re sure to love: the new ANALYZE tab.
One thing you’ll notice right away is the new look of the application while you’re opening a .pcap file. Now, in the lower-right hand corner, you’ll see a small window displaying your files’ progress.
After opening your packet capture file, click over to the ANALYZE tab. Clicking the Star icon next to the networks you’re interested in optimizing, you will be presented with observations and expert tips relating to your networks and their channel.
At the top of the observations, you’ll find a pie chart that displays what percentage of the recording’s airtime is taken up by your network(s), and how it compares to the amount of airtime used by other networks and the amount available as a whole.
Below the Air Time pie chart is the coolest part of the Analyze tab: the expert tips. When Eye P.A. processes your packet capture, it takes note of the amount of retransmissions, non-standard channels, the presence of legacy devices, and more! When you star a network for optimization, Eye P.A. will inform you of any observed issues.
If Eye P.A. finds something to tell you about, you’ll see a bold headline for the tip category along with a “Learn More” prompt that gives you some background. In addition to a general idea of the detected issue, Eye P.A. will provide you with the information you need to fix the problem– whether it’s a table of clients to examine, or a next step to take.
Download the latest Eye P.A. update today and check out the new Expert Tips.
If you haven’t already purchased – try a full-featured 15-day trial of Eye P.A for free..
See our previous post: Get ready to accelerate your .pcap skills with Visual Packet Analysis.
Right now, packet analysis works like a search engine. You enter a search term and it returns several thousand packets that meet the query. This works great when you know exactly what you’re looking for.
If you don’t – get ready to spend some time with your old friend, Mr. Scrollwheel.
For those of you who have been-there-done-that, I’d like to introduce you to Eye P.A.
Eye P.A. simplifies wireless network troubleshooting by visually aggregating the long lines of data saved in a .pcap file. It quickly displays what’s happening with your 802.11 network from a very high level while giving you the chance to drill down into the details with a helpful multi-layered animated pie chart.
For example, a BSSID may have several clients represented as the green inner layers.
These will be colored in different shades of green to represent the data rate of the conversation.
The Frame Types (outer layers) will be colored based on the type of frame: Data, Control or Management.
We’ve made the pie charts actionable, that means you can drill down by clicking on the pie chart itself. While the interactive pie charts are pretty flippin’ sweet (as we say here in Idaho), this is just a mere piece of our eyeball packet analyzer.
We want to invite you to watch the live-stream unveiling of our new wireless packet visualization tool at Wireless Tech Field Day on January 26th.
