Possible features in future releases

This list contains some features that may be implemented in future releases of the MaaTec Network Analyzer. If you miss a feature or if you want a specific feature rather soon, please send a short message to

  • Additional report formats (RTF, XML, etc.)
  • Daily or weekly summary reports
  • Monitoring module that sends e-mails (or creates other messages) when some traffic value exceeds a limit for a specific time
  • Remote configuration of reports
  • View of the network structure by evaluating routing packets of protocols that contain the needed information for this task (e.g. OSI or OSPF)
  • TCP- and/or OSI-connection monitoring with collection of fragmented packets (this would allow to implement upper layer decoders as well)
  • Decoder SDK that allows to build own extension DLLs for additional protocol decoders in C++

Version History

Version 1.80 Nov-05-2010
  • Performance optimizations for higher bandwith capturing and multi-threaded NIC access
  • Possible access violation on systems with more than one network card under very high load conditions

Version 1.71 Jun-24-2009
