Profishark 1G – All-in-One GigaBit Ethernet Troubleshooter

Profishark 1G - All-in-One GigaBit Ethernet TroubleshooterProfishark facilitates in-field traffic capture and troubleshooting. It is equivalent to a 10/100/1G aggregator TAP and two 1 Gbps NICs all in one pocket-sized box, the only additional hardware required being a laptop with a free USB 3.0 port.

Profishark 1G is the perfect tool for the field engineer as well as long-term traffic collection. As it is based on USB 3.0 (5 Gbit/s), the Profishark 1G manages full-duplex Gigabit at wire speed.

  • 10/100/1000 monitoring on USB 3.0
  • USB 3.0 powered
  • Failure safe monitoring
  • Hardware aggregation
  • 8ns hardware timestamp
  • Real time statistics
  • Low level error and bandwidth monitoring
  • Direct capture to disk
The PROFISHARK 1G can capture:
  • Any type of frames (pause frames, VLAN tagged, …)
  • Any encapsulated frames
  • CRC errors frames
  • Any frames between 10 bytes and 10 Kbytes


This feature allows real time analysis of aggregated and buffered traffic. It can measure latencies in nanosecond precision.

PT3 Manager

An application designed specififically for the PROFISHARK 1G. It provides a way for statistical analysis of a network, allowing for efficient excessive bandwidth usage detection, or any low layer errors using charts prior to a deeper investigation with an analyser.
