Protocol analyzer

Hello,

Besides WildPackets, NetworkProbe and NetworkMiner Pro, does anyone know of/use a commercial protocol analyzer instead of WireShark or ethereal for troubleshooting and monitoring the network.  It cannot be an Open Source Software or have open source components.

I've also looked into NetWitness and PRTG's sniffer.

Thanks

Also look at CommView (www.tamos.com) which is a very good packet sniffer and handles all common protocols.

Found a free Netalyzer test that is quite thorough and informative through UC Berkely's Computer Lab website.

Stoneylake gave me Web Site Not Found
Which product in Fluke? I couldn't find one that matched my request.
Packetmon looks to be a very rudimentary application for this kind of task.
vigiliti's website is down.
