Microsoft Network Monitor

What is Microsoft Network Monitor?

The Microsoft Network Monitor is a protocol analyzer. It lets the user capture, view, and analyze network traffic. It can also be used to troubleshoot network problems and applications on the network. Its first version, Microsoft Network Monitor 1.0, was a transport protocol and network adapter device driver engineer on the Microsoft LAN Manager Development team. It is compatible with Windows 8, 7, the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, and the Windows XP Service Pack 3. It requires 1 GHz or a greater CPU, 1 GB or greater memory, and 60 MB free hard disk space for capture files.

Key features of the Microsoft Network Monitor include process tracking, simultaneous capture sessions, real-time capture and display of frames, and reassembly of fragmented data. It is a network diagnostic tool that monitors LANs, providing a display of network status. Administrators can then use these stats to work on routine troubleshooting tasks, like locating servers that aren’t working, or receiving a high number of work requests.
