This section displays the current generic statistics for the service.

Statistic Description
Capture Status Status of data capture. Valid values are:
  • starting - Starting data capture (not capturing data yet).
  • started - Capturing data.
  • stopping - Stopping data capture (received request to stop data capture, but not have not stopped capturing data yet).
  • stopped - Not capturing data.
  • disabled - Not configured as a Decoder service.
Meta Bytes Number of meta bytes in the database.
Capture Kept Number of packets kept during capture.
Meta Total Amount of metadata in the database.
Capture Dropped Number of packets reported by the network card as dropped. After the service stops capturing data, the rate is reset to zero.
Packet Bytes Number of packet bytes in the database.
Capture Dropped Percent Packets reported by the network card as dropped as a percentage.
Packet Total Number of packet objects held in the packet database. The total decreases when the database rolls files off due to size constraints. After the service stops capturing data, the number is not reset.
Capture Rate Megabits per second rate at which the service is capturing data. Rate is a rolling average sample over a short time period (10 seconds). After the service stops capturing data, rate is reset to zero.
Session Bytes Number of session bytes in the database.
Capture Rate Max Maximum megabits per second rate at which the service is capturing data. Rate is a rolling average sample over a short time period (10 seconds). After the service stops capturing data, displays the maximum rate during data capture.
Session Total Number of sessions held in the session database. This value shrinks when the database rolls files off due to size constraints. After the service stops capturing data, the number is not reset.
Time Begin Time when first packet was captured (time when the first packet was stored in the packet database). This time increases as packets are rolled out of the packet database.
Pool Packet Write Number of packet pages currently in the PCS pipeline that need to be written to the database.
Time End Time when the last packet was captured (time when packet was written to the database). The time increases as new packets are captured.
Pool Packet Assembler Number of pool packet pages waiting to be assembled.
Assembler Packet Pages Number of packet pages waiting to be assembled.
Pool Packet Capture Number of packet pages available for capture.
