100% Packet Capture

Advanced FPGA-based Host CPU Offload

Each ANIC adapter port captures 100% of the incoming traffic, irrespective of packet size (i.e. 64 byte vs. jumbo frames), without dropping a single packet. Furthermore, line rate packet capture is supported irrespective of which packet processing functions (e.g. packet filtering) are enabled. Abundant onboard buffer memory is available to absorb abnormally large bursts of traffic.
