See What You’re Capturing
(While You’re Capturing)
WSYWIG Packet Capture - What you see is what you get! Select a
network, access point radio, or client, and watch as Tonic keeps
you informed about what it’s captured. Data frames, ACKs,
Authentication Frames - Tonic counts them all up in real time.
You’ll never doubt that you captured an Association Request and
Response, ever again.
If you see it, you’ve captured it!
Real-time Air Time
Built on MetaGeek Eye P.A.’s powerful Airtime Usage technology, Tonic records, calculates, and tracks Airtime Usage, a powerful Layer 2 measurement of time used on a Wi-Fi channel. See which AP’s and clients are talking slowly, repeating themselves, or otherwise consuming valuable time on the Wi-Fi channel, all in real-time.
Unlock powerful Layer 1 spectrum analysis by plugging in a
Wi-Spy DBx. Discover sources of non-Wi-Fi interference and
measure Wi-Fi channel congestion from a raw RF perspective, and
all in the same application that gives you powerful Layer 2
Don't have a Wi-Spy DBx? No problem - spectrum analysis in Tonic is totally optional.
Get Into the Flow
Source? Destination? Transmitter?! Receiver?! When all you need
is a quick view of what packet went where, Packet Flow has you
covered. Simple arrows show who transmitted the 802.11 frame,
and colorful labels show what kind of frame it was, so you can
track Wi-Fi conversations more easily than ever before.
Packet Flow makes you wonder, “Why didn’t we always do it like this?!
Automatic Event Detection
If you’re like us, you’ve spent hours creating filters, or
scrolling through thousands of packets to find specific events
like Association Requests or Deauthentications.
Tonic’s automatic event detection scrolls through the packets for you, identifying and categorizing events in real-time. Associations, Roams, Authentications, Neighbor Reports… everything appears automatically, live as you capture.
Clients roam, and when they do, they usually end up on a
different channel. That’s no problem for Tonic, which creates
teams of Wi-Fi adapters: one for capturing everything the client
says, and another to continuously watch for the client on all 24
other Wi-Fi channels - ready to follow the client to a new
channel at a moment’s notice.
Why stop at two? Plug in a third adapter to perform even faster off-channel scanning! MetaGeek Tonic supports tons of off-the-shelf USB Wi-Fi adapters for packet capture.
