Capturing from a Capture Engine
You can select from the following options to capture packets from a Capture Engine:
New Capture…: This option lets you create a new capture window based on the capture settings that you define.
New “Forensics Capture”: This option lets you create a new capture window based on pre-configured capture settings optimized for post-capture forensics analysis.
New “Monitoring Capture”: This option lets you create a new capture window based on pre-configured capture settings optimized to produce higher level expert and statistical data in a continuous capture.
Edit Capture Templates: This option opens the Capture Templates dialog and allows you to create new or edit existing capture templates.
NOTE: For more information about each of the optimized capture formats, please see the Omnipeek User Guide or online help.
