I opened the following as a ticket with support. The tech, @Tomasz S., requested I post to the forum for more input.
In the past I've used TTA 12.x for performing traces from a single
probe. We are testing DNA 12.4 and we would like to capture from 2-3
NetworkVantage probes simultaneously. Is there a best practice to sync
the clocks and/or traces between the 2-3 NV devices so merging there
will be little or no "Network: TCP Frame Out of Sequence, Network: TCP Missing Data" error messages in the merged capture?
The NV probes will be located in 3 separate data centers. One of the
NV probes will double as the test PC where the application commands will
be run via RDP.
Thanks and God bless,
Hmm, I'm not sure if Agent Manager was ever used for such scenarios, it is an old tool for changing promiscuous mode, changing password or resetting an agent. Agent Commander is a more powerful and modern tool for these jobs.
You're probably referring to Attended Capture - it does synchronize clocks with the agents, but only to make up for time zone differences, I think. I may take a look at the source code, though, to confirm.
It seems you’re referring to DNA agents, not NetworkVantage agents? I
have never had anything to do with the latter, they sound like an old
When it comes to time synchronization, there are several points worth considering.
