Summary

The packet trace compiles information about packets that triggered the filter. It encapsulates the information according to requirements set in the application per filter. For attack events with the appropriate settings, you can view the compiled and stored packet trace. A filter compiles a packet trace according to the action set settings. If the action set of the associated attack filter is configured to log a packet trace, you can view the packet trace log. The system saves the packet trace to a pcap file. The default filename uses the convention SMSTrace-VulnerabilityId-FilterName whereVulnerabilityId and FilterName are unique identifiers of the attack filter for which packet trace was enabled.

Packet Trace Options:

Packet trace options are available from the Events area or Device area of the SMS. You can request multiple packet trace files from multiple events or all packet traces on a specific device. Packet trace options are available for devices that support the packet trace feature. Devices, such as the Core Controller and the SSL do not support packet trace.
