The Programmable Packet Engine (PPE), is an advanced real-time network processing platform that enables users to take a radically different approach to network monitoring. The PPE provides the ability to programmatically search for, extract, and deliver detailed metadata in real-time, providing an unmatched level of situational awareness, traffic visibility, and control.
- Targets traffic of interest and generates metadata for any type of network, regardless of protocol
- Extracts data into key, value pairs, reducing the total amount of data needed to be analyzed, stored or processed
- Sends metadata out in JSON or any other data formats for use by stream processing, analytic platforms, and network monitoring devices
*In early 2018, MantisNet launched the Virtual Packet Programmable Engine. While the vPPE accomplishes the same objectives as the standard PPE of taking the next step in continuously decoding, extracting, and converting unstructured network data into actional intelligence, the vPPE is specially designed for the cloud and virtualized or container-based use cases.
