Capsa 7.7 adds 10+ decoders for new protocols, including SIP, SDP, MEGACO/H.248, MGCP, Q.931, SAP, H.225, RMI, Oracle, MMS, GOOSE, SMV, and GMRP. Capsa now decodes these protocols and shows you what information each packet takes. Several VoIP protocols are included. If you run VoIP service on the network, Capsa helps to analyze VoIP issues, like voice quality and connectivity issues.
The following are brief descriptions for some of these protocols:
As an important feature of Capsa, network administrators can create alarm rules to watch network anomalies, such as excessive traffic throughput, excessive broadcast packets, etc. In previous versions, when an alarm rule is violated, Capsa would send a pop-up window on the screen to notify the administrator. But, what if he is not around?
Besides pop-up window notifications, Capsa 7.7 will now send an email to your email box, and/or play sound, when an alarm is triggered. When you are out of office or on a vacation, this function will make sure you are timely notified when there is something going wrong on your network. Receiving an email notification, you can immediately look into the case and solve the problem before it grows to affect your network performance.
There are also several other improvements included on this new release. For example, you can now right-click on a node on the Node Explorer window to create a report for the node (or node group). The task scheduler is optimized to make sure auto-packet-capture runs more smoothly. Also there are several minor bug fixes.
