TIPS FROM THE FIELD

NEW!! Using Transum with WireShark

@kwall00

Ever have the need to track down application latencies from multiple PCAPs? This is something you can glean from the time stamps, but it is tedious. If you want to go a step further and find out service time latency, it’s even more mind-numbing and time-consuming. This is where a handy tool like Transum comes in, now included with the latest versions of WireShark.

YOU'RE IN GOOD HANDS WITH REAPER

NEW!! Reaper earns our 'In High Regard' badge for 500 Likes!

Live Community Solutions Engineer Tom Piens, aka @reaper, snags the first of the 'In High Regard' badges for 500 Likes in the community! What does that mean? It means you're in good hands with a cybersecurity expert (some call it a badass and we'd have to agree) who knows his stuff! Tom is king of the AMA (Ask Me Anything) game, which he loves to play at Ignite, at Fuel and Spark user group gatherings, in the Live Community discussion forums and anywhere he finds inquiring and interested cybersecurity folks ranging from initiates to experts. A round of applause for our reaper and a thousand thanks to go along with those 500 Likes and the well-deserved recognition.
