Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Chris Career and welcome to my course troubleshooting slow networks with wire shark. I'm a network analyst at Packet Pioneer and have been teaching protocol analysis with wire shark for nearly 20 years. Now, slow networks are very frustrating to end users. Network engineers and applications support people. And let's face it, the network usually gets the blame even when we know it's not the network. Capturing an interpreting package with wire shark can give us the detail. We need to quickly isolate the problem to the client network or server and point to the real root cause now where shark can be overwhelming when we're just getting comfortable with protocols and how to interpret them. However, in this course we're gonna use hands on demonstrations with shared trace files to help you learn more than just how to capture the howto practically interpret packets and resolve network problems. So get your copy of wire shark ready and follow along as we discuss capturing the right packets in the right places at the right time, measuring network Leighton see and packet loss, measuring application response time and creating custom filters and columns for pinpointing problems and much, much more. By the end of this course, you'll be able to use wire, shark toe, identify and resolve many common problems and networks that cause slowness before beginning the course you should be familiar with. I t networking in general, and you may have already taken the course on getting started with analyzing network traffic using wire shark. Although this is optional from here, you should feel comfortable moving on to other courses in the wire shark learning path. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn networking application troubleshooting with the troubleshooting slow networks with wire Sharp course here at plural site.
