Network problems can be difficult to diagnose. In recent years, due to the increase of networking and its advanced capabilities, the complexity of the debugging process has increased significantly. There are some advanced package binding tools like wireshark, which help developers diagnose problems.
In 2018, the Microsoft presented the Packet Monitor (PacketMon), an integrated network diagnostic tool for Windows. The PacketMon can be used for packet capture, packet drop detection, packet filtering and counting.
The Packetmon tracks packets at multiple locations throughout the networking process, revealing the path of the packet. If a package was rejected by a supported item, the PacketMon will report this lost package.
- Receive packages at multiple locations from the network
- Packet crash detection, including crash report
- Packet filtering with encapsulation support
- Flexible package counters
- Real-time package monitoring
- Large volume recording in memory
- Compatibility with Microsoft Monetize through partnering networks Monitor (NetMon) and Wireshark (pcapng)
The PacketMon it also has its limitations. It only supports Ethernet and is not included with the Firewall. Also, the lost packet report is only available for supported data.
And alternatively through the free tool of Micorosft Windows Admin Center, if you have downloaded it to your computer. If you have not downloaded it you can do it for free.
