You can take packet captures with Qosium. This is an optional feature, which can be taken completely off from the Qosium delivery. You can write Pcap files from the traffic you measure. This means that the packet trace is taken from the traffic that matches your measurement filter. You can open the Pcap file then with other packet analyzer tools. This guide demonstrates how you can perform packet capturing with Qosium Probe and Scope.
When you have a large network with many Qosium Probes installed, keeping track of each Probe and their IP addresses can become cumbersome. Qosium comes with a feature that allows you to find all your Qosium Probes in the network.
When you use Qosium Scope, you typically monitor results locally and store the results to a local file. However, when you want to store results, for example, to a remote database, you can set the results to be distributed to other locations in real-time.
One-point measurement enables you to measure and monitor traffic in a single point. You see, for example, traffic loads, packet counters, and traffic flows. In a single point, QoS parameters, such as delay, is not possible to be measured as they need a reference point. QoS measurement relates to measurement between two points in the network. However, jitter and packet loss can be calculated for certain applications such as RTP and MPEG.
Qosium Scope can be used to visualize QoS parameters on a geographical map. This feature is great for surveying application performance in a confined area, such as shopping mall, remote control operations area, residential area, or water route.
