Link™ Capture Software for Napatech FPGA SmartNICs
Link™ Capture Software 11.5.1
The Link™ Capture Software 11.5.1 release introduces support for the new Napatech NT200A02 2xQSFP28 SmartNIC. With this release and the NT200A02 the full Napatech Link™ Capture Software feature set is now supported for link speeds up to 2x100G. With this solution, you will also benefit from broader server compatibility, as the NT200A02 offers full PCIe Gen3 16-lane support, so that PCIe bifurcation support in the server is not required. This is especially important for 2x40G and 2x100G use cases where line rate throughput to the host is paramount. Supported NT200A02 port speed configurations: 2x40G and 2x100G. Other new features in this release: Start of frame time stamp support for NT40A01, NT20E3, NT80E3, NT100E3, NT200A02 and NT200A01

Link™ Capture Software for Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA
Link™ Capture Software 11.5.1 (for Intel PAC)
Napatech Link™ Capture Software 11.5.1 for the Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA. The software suite included in 11.5.1 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.
