how-to-improve-network-analysis-with capsa-colorization-feature-0Troubleshooting network problems can be a very difficult and challenging task. While most IT engineers use a network analyzer to help solve network problems, when analyzing hundreds or thousands of packets, it can become very hard to locate and further research conversations between hosts. Colasoft’s Capsa v8 now introduces a new feature that allows us to highlight-colorize relevant IP conversations in the network based on their MAC address, IP Addresses, TCP or UDP conversations.

This great new feature will allow IT engineers to quickly find the related packets of the conversations they want to analyze emphatically, using just a few clicks.

Visit our Network Protocol Analyzer Section for high-quality technical articles covering Wireshark topics, detecting and creating different type of network attacks plus many more great security articles.

As shown in the screenshot below, users can colorize any Conversation in the MAC Conversation View, IP Conversation View, TCP Conversation View and UDP Conversation View. Packets related to that Conversation will be colorized automatically with the same color.

Take TCP conversation for example, choose one conversation, right-click it and choose "Select Conversation Color" in the pop-up menu:

The relevance between a conversation and its packets is enhanced by colorizing packets which greatly improves analysis efficiency.
