About LiveWire Virtual
Congratulations on your purchase of LiveWire Virtual™! LiveWire Virtual is a virtual version of the LiveWire hardware network appliance. LiveWire Virtual uniquely combines flow-based reporting using deep packet inspection (DPI) with high-speed, packet capture and storage. LiveWire Virtual is designed to work with both LiveAction’s LiveNX and ThreatEye. Because LiveWire Virtual starts with packet data, it is able to provide a unique, and extended, set of flow-based monitoring data called LiveFlow. LiveFlow is extended IPFIX data and is exported to LiveNX and ThreatEye. See Sending Telemetry to LiveNX and ThreatEye for the additional tasks you must perform in order to export LiveFlow data from LiveWire Virtual to LiveNX and ThreatEye. Please also refer to the LiveNX and ThreatEye documentation for more information on using the LiveFlow data exported to LiveNX and ThreatEye.
The Capture Engine software on LiveWire Virtual works in conjunction with Omnipeek, a separate software program required for the monitoring and analysis of the packets captured remotely by LiveWire Virtual. For detailed instructions on how to view and analyze remote captures from within the Omnipeek console, please see the Omnipeek User Guide or Omnipeek online help. For more information on the Capture Engine software, please see Capture Engines.
