"The Ninja InfiniBand solution solves a long-standing industry problem by providing a method to tap, capture, measure, and analyze InfiniBand traffic without impacting the operation of these low-tolerance networks," said Gerald Combs of CACE Technologies, original author of Wireshark, the popular open-source network protocol analyzer. "It is gratifying to see support for a new network topology added to Wireshark, and considering the inherent requirements for InfiniBand capture, this is especially exciting," continued Combs.
The InfiniBand solution includes a NinjaITM, a programmable, bi-directional physical layer InfiniBand Tap Matrix switch. Enabling up to 12 InfiniBand links to be monitored on-demand, the entirely passive and application-transparent tap causes no disruption when installed or reconfigured. Traffic filtering and analysis is performed on a NinjaBox 4/8-core Linux server system, or the hardened NinjaProbe appliance.
"InfiniBand continues to grow as a preferred method of inter-connection in super computing environments. Our InfiniBand package extends the reach of Endace monitoring solutions into this critical area," said Steve Gleave, VP of Marketing for Endace. "NinjaBox and NinjaProbe platforms provide a single, unified environment to monitor widely deployed local and wide area network interface."
