An analyzer is a measuring device
that monitors and analyzes a
system, a radio link or a transmission link, a transmitteror a component in terms of frequency, wave or level.The data
from analyzers are recorded and stored and analyzed with regard to deviations. In accordance with the different areas of application, a distinction is made in analyzers between spectrum analyzers, vector signal analyzers, network analyzers, logic analyzers and network or protocol analyzers. The latter are used to detect problems in a data network, e.g. traffic density, data throughput, congestion, etc.
