Using the Name Table
About the name table
The Omnipeek Name Table is used for constructing and maintaining symbolic names for network devices and processes.
When you first start capturing packets, devices on your network will typically be identified by their logical or physical addresses. The Name Table lets you assign symbolic names to addresses, ports and protocols. When you are collecting statistics, Omnipeek scans all traffic for logical and symbolic names in the contents of passing packets. You can control how and whether these passively discovered names are added to the Name Table.
The Name Table interacts with open Capture Engine capture windows in order to perform name resolution functions. See Omnipeek name resolution.
You can also use the Name Table and the Capture Engine Trust Table to set a trust value for any physical address in the Name Table. See Using the Capture Engine trust table.
