Captures

Packet Captures allows you to capture all outgoing and incoming data from Things connected to Monogoto. Using Packet Capture, a PCAP file can be generated for a specific Thing which includes all data traffic routed via Monogoto over the past 60 minutes.
Packet capture is available for things that are connected to an APN served by Monogoto.
