This article helps users to monitor network bandwidth and analyze network traffic in an IBM AIX server using ProbeVue. This provides users with a near real time view of what is happening in their network for a user-specified time interval or when a user specified event occurs. This takes very less time to diagnose certain network issues compared to traditional tools such as IPTRACE and TCPDUMP. This is because ProbeVue provides only the data requested by the user instead of providing the entire data, which requires a lot of time to analyze and diagnose a specific problem.
