Definition of an Application

I am wondering if anyone can shed light on what an "Application" is within OmniPeek?

When I say "Application" I am talking about the applications that you see under Expert/Applications and also under Dashboards / Timeline listed as "Top Applications by Bytes". These Applications include applications like:

- iTunes
- YouTube
- Google Drive

Is there some sort of logic flow that I can view to understand the selection of Applications?

The Application is selected by a proprietary method that engineering has programmed into Omnipeek.

The Expert Applications view categorizes each flow by application. Flows are grouped together by application, first by server, then by client, and then by port.

The Applications dashboard displays key statistics for applications in the capture window. This application visibility provides insight into user behavior and traffic patterns on the network at certain times of day, week, month, or year.
