Accurate measurement data are crucial for correct understanding of traffic. Ever increasing bandwidth pushes the requirements for measurement equipment beyond pure SW/PC solutions. We developed a scalable architecture of a hardware-supported, passive measurement platform, the I2MP, for high-precision traffic measurement for Gigabit Ethernet with flexible filter possibilities and intelligent selection of the cutting area within a frame. In this paper, this platform will be presented.
