Link™ Capture Software for Napatech FPGA SmartNICs
Link™ Capture Software 11.9.10
The Link™ Capture Software 11.9.0 release introduces support for the CPU Socket Load Balancer feature on the Napatech NT200A02 SmartNIC. Packets captured on the monitoring port(s) on the primary NT200A02 SmartNIC is replicated and transferred to the secondary NT200A02 SmartNIC over interconnect cables between the two SmartNIC’s. Thereby, server system overhead due to QPI transfer between CPU sockets is eliminated. The solution supports transfer of 40G line rate captured Ethernet traffic for 1x40G or 4x10G monitoring ports.
Windows Version 11.8.1
Linux Version 11.9.10
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.
