What can I do with my Aerohive captures once they are in CloudShark?

4 min read

By now you’ve signed up for a CloudShark account and probably pushed your first capture from HiveManager NG into your repository. Where do you go from here? What sort of things should you be looking for? What exactly have I captured? A packet capture file sourced from your Aerohive device contains a record of all network traffic that passed through the interface you chose when doing your capture. In HiveManager NG, if you have captured on a WLAN interface, this will be 802. Keep reading

Automating remote capture with pcapdaemon and CloudShark

2 min read

One of the most powerful ways to use CloudShark is to aggregate captures from multiple locations. While many network devices have packet capture natively (and some integrated with CloudShark upload), for other systems, it’s necessary to use custom scripts that utilize tshark (with the CloudShark plug-in for Wireshark installed) or tcpdump in tandem with CURL to use the CloudShark upload API. While all of these solutions are effective, they do require you to log into the remote machine (or have scripts to do so) in order to the initiate the captures. Keep reading

Easily Adding Custom Dissectors to CloudShark

2 min read

It’s no secret that CloudShark uses tshark to generate the data we use in the CloudShark database, resulting in what you see when you view a capture in the CloudShark viewer. CloudShark sorts and caches this information to make it faster and easier for you to get to the information you need, when you need it. The added advantage of using tshark is that all of the most recent dissectors published in the latest versions of Wireshark can be used in CloudShark immediately without any additional work.
