Drag and drop captures right into your browser, or upload using your personal API key. You can access them from anywhere - even on a mobile device. You can upload directly from Wireshark, too, with our CloudShark plug-in.


CloudShark's web-enhanced analysis and collaboration tools raise the bar on what you can learn from packet-capture data. Annotate packets, visualize protocol conversations, and build graphs - balancing ease-of-use with expert detail.


Instantly link to your capture or to any analysis view, letting others see exactly what you're seeing. You have control over whether your captures are public or not, for when you need a second look at a problem from a larger audience.

Bring your packets with you.

CS Personal offers network analysis in the cloud.

Because CS Personal is accessed completely through a web browser, and accounts are hosted for you on our servers, you can bring it with you wherever you need to go.

Don't worry about VPN access or firewall rules. Share trace files from a meeting or lunch – a conference, or on the road. The packets stay on the CS Personal cloud servers so downloading large files is never an issue.

Advanced analysis tools for every use case

Solve networking problems without leaving your web-browser

Display Filters

Support for all of the display filters found in WireShark and helps you remember what they are by autocompleting as you type. Any applied filter is automatically added to the URL for easy sharing.

HTTP Object Extraction

Reassemble and extract scripts, images, documents, and even videos from HTTP conversations within capture files. These documents can be previewed from inside of CloudShark, or downloaded for further offline analysis.

Merge and Extract

Merge captures together, or break them apart! Take capture files from multiple locations or over a set of time periods and CloudShark can merge them together. Or go the other way and drill down into a large file to save only the packets you need.

VoIP and SIP Analysis

CloudShark is the perfect tool for working with SIP conversations and VoIP call traffic. Use the built-in SIP Call Flow visual diagram for an easy to follow view of signaling between endpoints. Diagnose issues or confirm configurations by looking at the SIP headers, which are never more than a click away.
