Eye P.A. is a packet analyzer that makes WiFi traffic visible for quick analysis and diagnosis. At a glance, you can find and fix packet loss, monitor channel capacity, minimize congestion, and shed light on network configuration and security issues.
Unlike a typical protocol analyzer, Eye P.A. uses multi-layer pie charts to visualize network traffic. This allows you to quickly view airtime utilization for all access points, client devices, and packet types transmitted on a selected channel. With just a few clicks, you can identify problematic devices without sifting through hundreds of lines of packet data.
Bonus for Wireshark Users: You can export filtered data directly to Wireshark!
Packet loss forces devices to retransmit data, which impacts WiFi throughput and clogs up bandwidth for every client on a wireless channel. Eye P.A. makes it easy to identify sources of packet loss, helps you to understand why devices are retransmitting, and provides guidance to get your network running at optimal data rates.
Since each wireless channel has limited capacity, efficient airtime utilization is crucial for high-performance WiFi. Eye P.A. measures data rates, allowing you to identify slow-transmitting devices that are clogging up your network. Once they have been identified, offending devices can be reconfigured or eliminated to free up precious network bandwidth.
There is a lot to consider when deploying a wireless network, and sometimes settings are easy to overlook. Eye P.A. will help you to identify and fix common WiFi configuration issues, such as non-standard channels, legacy data rates and sub-optimal network security.
Eye P.A. supports packet capture with the AirPcap Nx. This 2×2 MIMO packet sniffer device allows you to record 802.11a/b/g/n packet captures in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Support for AirPcap Nx is built into Eye P.A., so you won’t have to launch another program.
