AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Endace Limited (LSE/AIM: EDA), a world leader in network monitoring solutions, today announced immediate availability of its Ninja InfiniBand™ portfolio, an exclusive combination of network taps, high speed capture platforms and analytical software. Already guaranteeing packet capture on TDM, SONET/SDH and Ethernet interfaces, Endace’s range of NinjaBox development platforms and NinjaProbe network appliances now also support the InfiniBand interface, for deployment within high performance computing clusters. The solution includes a 24 port configurable tap and the industry’s first InfiniBand plug-in for Wireshark thereby facilitating on-board data analysis and obviating the need for remote distribution of large capture files.

“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.
