New to Capsa Network Analyzer Step by Step


Where should I deploy Capsa?

Before installing Capsa to our machine, we should really spend a minute to figure out our network topology. We should place Capsa at the core of our network that all traffics coming and leaving from it.

Hubbed network

Switched network

  • Managed switch (Port spanning/mirroring)

    A managed switch sends a copy of one or all ports' traffics to the spanning/mirroring port.

  • Unmanaged switch (Hub or TAP)

    Place a hub or TAP behind the unmanaged switch.

Proxied network

Install Capsa on the proxy server directlyFor more deployment environments, please visit: Installation Deployment
