Description : real-time network traffic visualization
Trafshow is a simple interactive program that gather the network traffic
from all libpcap-capable interfaces to accumulate it in memory cache, and
then separately display it on appropriated curses window in line-narrowed
manner as a list of network flows sorted by throughput. Display updates
occurs nearly in real time, asynchronously from data collecting. It look
like a live show of traffic flows. Any kind of network traffic are mixed
together in the one live-show screen, an Ethernet, IP, etc.
The IP traffic can be aggregated by netmask prefix bits and service ports
to reorganize a heap of trivial flows into the treelike hierarchies suitable
for human perception. The user can glance over the list of resulting flows
and select at their to browse detail. So you can deepen into the traffic
inheritance hierarchy and inspect the packets of each trivial flow in variety
of presentations: raw-hex, ascii, time-stamp.
The program make aggregation automatically when number of flows will exceed
some reasonable amount. Just a few seconds after launch may be required for
adaptation to your volume of traffic.
Trafshow also listens on UDP port (as a server) for diverse feeders of Cisco
Netflow and then separately display the collected data in the same manner as
described above. The following versions of Netflow are currently supported:
V1, V5, V7.
