Applying a Filter to the Capture

A filter may be applied to the capture itself, thus avoiding the collection of data that is not needed to diagnose your problem. To do this you must set the Capture filter in the Capture Settings dialog box in the Configure menu. Once the filter is set here, it will remain active for all subsequent captures and must be either removed by choosing <no filter selected> or set to a new filter when it is no longer needed. The Capture Filter may also be reset through the Apply Filter command in the Capture menu.

Applying a Filter to an Existing Capture File

To apply a filter to a network capture that is already completed, you must first load the file into the Network Monitor if it is not already loaded. Then select Apply Filter from the Capture menu and select apply filter to the currently selected capture window and choose the filter to be applied. Click the OK button. The current capture will be immediately filtered using the rules in the specified filter.


Saving the Results of a Filtered File

Once you have applied a filter to a file, you may save the result to a new file by selecting the Save As command in the File menu.

Releasing a Filter

Once selected a filter will remain active until it is released. If the filter is active only on the currently displayed capture file, then you can release the filter by selecting <no filter selected> from the pull down filter box in the toolbar. If on the other hand your filter is active at capture time, then you must release this by selecting <no filter selected> in the Capture Settings before taking the next capture.

Managing your Filters

Once created, filters may be modified or duplicated by selecting the Filters in the Configure menu. Just select the filter to be modified, duplicated, renamed or deleted and then click on the appropriate action button.
