Analyzing Live Traffic Using Wireshark


Wireshark is a well known network protocol analyzer and one of many applications used for network protocol analysis.


Wireshark can interactively browse packet data from a live network or from a previously save pcap file.



Note: You can download Wireshark from http://www.wireshark.org



To use Wireshark to decode a previously saved packet flow capture file, export the file from the switch and analyze it with Wireshark.



Note: The path to a Netvisor One switch pcap file is: /net/<ServerSw_Name>/ONVL/global/flow/<Flow_Name>/<Switch_Name>/pcap
