1) Introduction
===============
Network Instruments develops software and hardware solutions for analyzing and managing network
and application performance, such as network analyzers. They were founded in 1994, and are headquartered
in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The mainstay product of Network Instruments is its Observer family of network
analyzers (including Observer, Observer Expert and Observer Suite). The Observer product family was built for
real-time analysis, monitoring, and reporting of full-duplex network links in environments including local area networks
(LAN), wireless, Fibre Channel, Wide Area Networks, gigabit Ethernet, and Full duplex 10 GbE
