Link™ Capture Software for Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA
Link™ Capture Software 11.7 (for Intel PAC)
Napatech Link™ Capture Software 11.7 for the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA. The software suite included in 11.7 supports both the Napatech SmartNIC’s and the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA, providing a common framework for application integration. Applications can be integrated using libpcap, DPDK or Napatech’s NTAPI. The Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA can be configured for 1x40G of 4x10G port speeds, and the application benefits from the feature rich Napatech capture/replay acceleration feature set. The solution provides a powerful acceleration of e.g. open source security applications, such as Suricata, Snort and Bro.
