Reconstructing streams of HTTP, VoIP, and more
The process of capturing and reconstructing traffic is pretty much the same regardless of traffic type. Use these steps to reconstruct the stream.
Note: Stream reconstruction (including VoIP) is illegal in some jurisdictions and may be disabled by VIAVI to comply with those laws.
The process described here is for reconstructing HTTP, but the process is the same for other applications, except instep 6 you would choose the appropriate menu option.
1. Isolate the time frame in the Detail Chart you want to analyze. See Selecting a time frame to analyze.
2. Using the various Statistics tabs, select IP Stations tab and choose the station(s) you want to isolate. This creates a filter.
3. Click Update Chart. This updates the Detail Chart and shows you all of the traffic from the address.
4. You can further filter the chart and reports by selecting specific traffic types (for example, HTTP, SMTP, Telnet, and so on).
5. Analyze the data using one of the options described in Mining data from your GigaStor . This opens your data in the Decode tab in Observer .
6. Assuming the data is HTTP, select a packet in the Decode tab and right-click. Choose TCP Dump (HTTP) from the menu. This analyzes the data and opens it in the Expert tab.
7. Scroll through the decoded packets. Click the “ReconstructedPage.html” files to see the web page as it looked when the user saw it.
