Non-GigaStor-specific settings
The GigaStor Control Panel is a portion of Observer. Some settings in Observer affect the GigaStor.
Some things you may want to configure in Observer include:
Discovering host names so that GigaStor resolves and uses host names. See the Discovery section in the Observer User Guide.
Protocol definitions. This is particularly important if you have custom protocols you want to monitor. See the Discovery section in the Observer User Guide.
TCP/UDP/Server applications. By defining specific applications Observer can provide more detailed reports to you. Observer has many applications already defined, but you can add more if you wish. See the Discovery section in the Observer User Guide.
The default settings for Observer is to not be aware of TCP connections that were opened after the GigaStor or packet capture started. You can change this default setting.
Mine some data from the GigaStor. See Analyzing data without any filters. This opens the Decode and Analysis tab.
Ensure the Expert Analysis tab is selected, then click the Settings button at the top. The Expert Global Settings window opens.
Click the TCP/IP tab and clear the Follow only newly opened TCP connections option. A newly opened TCP connection is any connection established after Expert Analysis was started. If the conversation started before Expert Analysis was started, Observer cannot see it.
