TIMESTAMPING PROTOCOLS SUPPORTED
Accurate timestamping hardware is essential to ensure the 100% accuracy of the data that P2D Analytics provides. We recommend that you use specialist hardware to pass the traffic to P2D analytics with the timestamps attached. Our approach is to support the hardware that is likely to already be in use on your network and we are continually working towards supporting additional hardware. We currently support data received from a high performance, timestamping NICs such as Solarflare, Mellanox or Exablaze or timestamping tap aggregation devices or switches including Arista, Solarflare, Metamako and NetScout.
