PacketRAID Specifications

PacketRAID can record and replay 4 10G packet streams at once - any mix of LAN ethernet, WAN ethernet and PoS (SDH).  It can also record and replay 1G ethernet and below, as well as signals at the raw bit level including STM-1, STM-4, STM-16, channelised STM-64, OTU2 and OTU2e.

All data is stored on a very high speed SSD RAID array - optimised for sustained throughput and built with a standard Linux filing system (XFS). The use of solid state technology allows PacketRAID to record on some ports whilst replaying on others at the same time - there are no disk seek times to impact performance. Data can be imported or exported over NFS, SMB or any other standard protocol.

All aspects of the PacketRAID can be remote-controlled, and sample scripts are provided for BASH and Python. Within The Packet Company, we use this feature to automate product testing via Jenkins.
