Frame Display Frame Display Window Frame Display - Frame Analysis
View data at varying levels of granularity, from frame/message level to bit/byte level. Includes summary information for messages sent and received. Decoding of message into text. Protocol errors are identified with red frame numbers. Message is shown in binary, octal, hex and ASCII. Display filters include pre-set filters, node information filters and user defined complex filters. Capture filter limits the amount of Ethernet data captured. Multiple Frame Display Windows can be opened for simultaneous views of different sections of the captured data.
Pane SummarySummary Pane - Frame Summary
View a one line high-level overview of each data frame/message. Select a protocol layer and the most significant fields are displayed in a concise form. Selecting a specific message frame causes text information to appear in the Frame Decode pane. To facilitate troubleshooting, all panes are adjustable in size and are synchronized. Selecting a message frame in the Summary pane automatically updates the other panes. Selecting an item in the Decode pane highlights the corresponding bits or bytes in the other panes. Protocol errors result in red frame numbers. Quick-filters create a new Summary display that only includes frames/messages that contain the protocol layer you have selected, making it easy to zoom in on your messaging/protocol problems. Frame Summary information can be exported into CSV format and loaded into a spreadsheet or other program to do intricate statistical analysis of protocol and network information.
Summary Pane
Decode Pane Frame Decode
View a comprehensive layered decode of each frame/packet through the Decode Pane Decode Pane. Each field of a data frame is decoded layer-by-layer using a tree structure, with clear, concise descriptions. Selecting a field will automatically highlight the associated bytes in binary, hex, and ASCII. Selecting an item in the Decode pane will also highlight corresponding bits/bytes in other panes. Use the Summary pane to identify protocol or messaging problems and then drill-down using the Decode pane to solve the problem.

 Frame Display - Frame Level Search
Examine and search data as it is being captured (or after it has been saved), through use of the Find Function Find. Use the Find Function to quickly pinpoint problem areas in the captured data or to move to a specific frame. The frame level Find Function can 1) search the text of the decode for a specified string, 2) search for errors, and 3) limit the search to specific node. Data searches can also be performed at the byte level.

Frame Display - Capture and Display Filters
Use a Capture Filter to capture only the specific IP or MAC address information that you are interested in. Sift through large volumes of captured data and focus only on the problem areas. FTS's unique "drill down" capability enables the user to apply new filters Filters while preserving previous views of the data. Captured data can be filtered on either an "include filtered data" or "exclude filtered data" basis. Filter parameters include protocol and data pattern; advanced mode enables the user to set up complex filters.
