Using the Microburst Analysis tab in the GigaStor Control Panel
To search for microbursts across a large time frame (greater than 15 minutes) you must use the Microburst Analysis tab.
The Microburst Analysis tab shows you the number of microbursts Observer found in the time frame you selected. You can see exactly when the microburst occurred, how many bytes where in the burst, and the network utilization when the burst occurred.
When you select a microburst, you can choose to see that slice of time on the Detail Chart or you can view the packet in the Decode pane.
You can select the Microburst Analysis Graph tab and see the found microbursts on a graph.
