Using a project for capture and analysis
A project is a scheme of capture settings and a container for captured data. You can save a project to hard disk for reuse at a later time. Project is an essential ingredient in Javvin Packet Analyzer, you must create a new project or open an existing project before you start capturing packets or performance other functions.
Javvin Packet Analyzer captures network traffic and analyzed packets on the conditions of project settings. Without project, you could not do anything even just view old data. Therefore the first thing you should do after launch the program is to create/open a project. You can choose to create a blank project, select a project template or open an existing project. Details are described in below sections.
Blank project, saved project and project template
For the first time to use Javvin Packet Analyzer, you can simply click the Start Capture Now button to automatically apply the predefined settings for capture. You don't need to set project settings, except you have to select the adapter for this project. Each time when you create a new project, you may always use the blank project to save the time for setting. If you want to change the settings during capture, you could click the Adapter, Filter or Analyzers icon in the toolbar, or General Settings... from the Project menu to open the Project Settings dialog, and after alteration, save the project or save it as a template.
You can open a saved project (if applicable) with its data and settings from the Start Page or by clicking the Open icon; but when you start capture, Javvin Packet Analyzer will clear or reset some contents in the project buffer.
Javvin Packet Analyzer supports project templates, you can first customize the settings for a project and then save it as a template. Project templates can be easily loaded from the Start Page.
Opening multiple projects
Javvin Packet Analyzer allows you to open multiple projects for focusing on different packets, each project has its own project window, capture adapter and project settings, which requires you to operate individually.
Multiple projects let you compare your network under different conditions, helping you find out network problems more easily. For example, when you have two network segments, you can open two projects: Project 1 focuses on segment 1 and Project 2 focuses on segment 2.
Note: It may reduce your system performance if you open multiple projects and capture packets simultaneously.
