Using the Online Help in Network Associate's Sniffer Pro
Q: "When I use Network Associates' SnifferPro, I see a LOT of different symptoms and diagnosis! How can I begin to understand what each symptom and diagnosis means?"
A: The Sniffer Network Analyzer has many different messages that can be displayed under the symptoms or diagnosis column. Each message is documented in the Sniffer manuals, but it's the on-line Sniffer Help that assists with real-time analysis!
To view the on-line help,highlight one of the symptoms or diagnosis, and select the Objects tab (or double click on the symptom or diagnosis). In the following screen-shot, the 'Broadcast/Multicast Storm' symptom is highlighted.
The Objects display will show the statistics that are specific to the symptom or diagnosis, and a question mark button will be displayed to the far right of the symptom name.
