A Faster PacketTotal

Our Search API beta has dramatically increased the volume of concurrent requests to the engine, requiring us to re-think some of our initial infrastructure choices.

PacketTotal has previously performed noticeably slower when handling large volumes of traffic. To address this we have migrated our ElasticSearch cluster into a AWS high-availability environment, and made several optimizations to the backend data-model.

This update also makes major improvements to the speed and fidelity of the similar PCAPs view; reported timeouts have also been addressed.

Finally, we have taken this opportunity to add some small enhancements to the intel view, which now links to external intelligence sources.

More API updates right around the corner, stay tuned!
