Duplicate packet removal

A service efficiency feature available from GigaSMART®, De-duplication offloads the task of removing redundant packet information from analysis tools and applications to the Gigamon Visibility Platform. De-duplication significantly improves the performance of connected tools and applications. Selected Layer 3 and Layer 4 fields are configurable for duplicate detection, with detection intervals between 10-50,000 μs. Normal packet forwarding changes, such as the source and destination MAC addresses are ignored, ensuring the fidelity of transmitted packets.

The numerous benefits of de-duplication

  • Improved efficiency of connected tools and applications
  • More accurate performance analysis
  • Reduction in false positive results for error reporting metrics, such as retransmissions
  • Reduction in load, due to elimination of duplicate packet storage
  • Faster, more accurate forensics and malware detection
