Analysing and Troubleshooting with WireShark
Note: Attendees should have skill in/knowledge of – layers of the OSI model and different networking addressing functions and PDU (protocol data unit) common to each layer, various transmission types (Unicast/Broadcast/Multicast), network switch and router configuration to enable IGMP snooping/Layer 2 & 3 QoS/Mirror ports, VLAN function and configuration.
Audiovisual distribution systems are becoming increasingly reliant on network infrastructure. Many of today’s common applications for transmitting A/V signals utilize advanced network protocols and require complex design and configuration for successful implementation. Following manufacturer recommendations is critical, but developing the skills to evaluate and troubleshoot networks independently will help support reliable deployments and efficient problem resolutions. Attend this session to learn how to use Wireshark software and interpret the results of network packet captures. During the course learners will review real world examples and discuss how to implement solutions to common issues.
At the conclusion of the course, learners will be able to:
Run a packet capture using the freely available Wireshark software
Identify key items in a packet capture to evaluate when analyzing network performance
Recognize common indicators of errors or misconfigurations on the network
List steps to resolve common configuration problems
