Kithara: real-time data storage in PCAPng
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.
