New to Capsa Network Analyzer Step by Step


Get to know the main user interface

After a capture initiated, we come to the main program, which provides a wide range of statistics and analysis results for us to analyze and monitor our network. The main user interface is described below:

  1. Menu Button: click it to display the menu which contains all the infrequently used commands, i.e. Print, Engine Settings, Global Options, and so on.
  2. Ribbon: all frequently used commands of the older version are transplanted into big icons in the Ribbon, which enables us to find commands more conveniently and quickly.
  3. Node Explorer: organizes all the protocols, physical addresses and IP addresses appeared in our network in a hierarchical structure, which gives us a generally understanding of the network communication. We can use it as a display filter to concentrate our analysis on a specific node as well.
  4. Main Views: the main part of the program. It provides all the statistics, diagnosis results, logs, reports, graphs, packets and matrix in 14 different tabs.
  5. Alarm Explorer: manages all the alarms and notifies us all the activities violating our alarm rules with pop ups.
  6. Status Bar: displays general information like adapter name, filter settings, project duration, packet count and alarms statistics of the project.
