Reduce and Analyze Traffic with Advanced Filtering

Advanced filters enable you to isolate traffic by protocol, domain, application, and so on. For example, the following visual demonstrates how to isolate BOOTP request traffic (in other words, client devices requesting an IP address from a BOOTP Server on their network segment).

Tip: Click the arrows button () to exclude/include the specified filter pattern.

Tip: For filtering on an IP address, you can use CIDR notation to identify a subnet of hosts from which the reports display data. For example, when you select a Sender filter type, you can specify a subnet using to display information from all of the hosts in the subnet.

Tip: You can enter a port number instead of an application name to show all traffic transmitting over a certain port.
