DIS Packet Analyzer (DPA)
HLA Packet Analyzer (HPA)

Diagnostics logs network traffic on a given network port and provides display filters, which allow users to efficiently observe, sort, and analyze simulation data. DIS Packet Analyzer (DPA) is the application within Diagnostics that supports analyzing DIS networks.  This allows the user to troubleshoot and analyze their simulation network traffic using easy-to-read dialogs that arrange PDU data in a logical sequence. A similar application, called HLA Packet Analyzer (HPA), is also available for analyzing HLA network traffic.
