Omnipeek hangs on capture, help beginner

Postby Clint Felkar » Thu Jan 21, 2010 8:41 am

OmniPeek hangs after 20 to 24 hours of continous capture. File size creation has been limited to 2mb. All protocols have been removed for the captured NIC. Please help.

You may want to increase your file size, as writing to disk after 2MB is very CPU intensive, especially on a busy network. Make sure the capture buffer is not too large. Windows can only allocate 2GB per any app and the capture buffers are cumulative. Also, make sure you turn off any unneeded Analysis Options.
