Meinberg PTP Track Hound v2

PTP Track Hound v2 is a tool that can be used to easily log, review, and analyse PTP (IEEE1588) traffic in a given network. Unlike widely used and generic traffic sniffers which serve as packet sniffers for more conventional diagnosis and analysis, PTP Track Hound is specifically designed for the monitoring and analysis of PTP traffic, generating reports, charts, and illustrative diagrams for this purpose. While generic traffic sniffers focus on communication between two devices, PTP Track Hound has been conceived from the ground up with an awareness that relationships between devices in a PTP network are only usefully understood in the context of an entire PTP network.
