Kithara Software has announced the support for PCAPng within Kithara RealTime Suite. This will allow for any measurement data to be written and read in real time and in a Wireshark-compatible format.
In combination with the Storage Module by Kithara, measurement data and even image data in PCAPng can be saved as well as fetched without loss in real-time. The embedding into sophisticated test applications, such as for automotive sensor systems or hardware-in-the-loop simulations, is also possible. Data storage is becoming increasingly important for Kithara, since a major part of customers is already actively utilizing Big Data. The support for specialized formats, such as PCAPng, is therefore a crucial step for the company.
PCAPng is a Wireshark-supported file format for capturing data packets within networks. This also makes the free Wireshark a tool for analyzing measurement data.
