C


Capsa
 

web: http://www.colasoft.com/
Licence: There is a Capsa Free and also commercial versions (Capsa WiFi, Capsa Pro, Capsa Enterprise)

Platform: win

Description: Capsa Free Edition is a network traffic analyzer ( Packet Sniffer ) for Windows.

web: http://www.tamos.com/products/commview/ 

License: commercial
Platform: MS Win
Description: CommView is a powerful network monitor and analyzer designed for LAN administrators, security professionals, network programmers, home users…virtually anyone who wants a full picture of the traffic flowing through a PC or LAN segment.

Ditg

web: http://www.grid.unina.it/software/ITG/

License: free
Platform: Linux/Win
Description: D-ITG (Distributed Internet Traffic Generator) is a platform capable to produce traffic at packet level accurately replicating appropriate stochastic processes for both IDT (Inter Departure Time) and PS (Packet Size) random variables (exponential, uniform, cauchy, normal, pareto, ...). D-ITG supports both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic generation and it is capable to generate traffic at network, transport, and application layer. We believe that D-ITG shows interesting properties when compared to other traffic generators.

Ditg is is officially part of the Debian distribution.

 

E


etherape

web: included inside of linux distros, http://etherape.sourceforge.net/

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description: EtherApe is a graphical network monitor for Unix modeled after etherman. Featuring link layer, IP and TCP modes, it displays network activity graphically. Hosts and links change in size with traffic. Color coded protocols display.

It supports Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ISDN, PPP and SLIP devices. It can filter traffic to be shown, and can read traffic from a file as well as live from the network.

Ethstats

web: included inside of linux distros

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description: ethstats works by parsing the /proc/net/dev file that the Linux kernel maintains, and thus utilizes a negligible amount of CPU time. ethstats shows the throughput of each device in both megabits per second and packets per second.

 

N


Ngrep

web: http://ngrep.sourceforge.net/

Licence: free
Platform: *nux, 
Description: Ngrep is a pcap-aware tool that will allow you to specify extended regular expressions to match against data part of packets on the network. Ngrep allow you to specify extended regular or hexadecimal expressions to match against data payloads of packets. It currently recognizes IPv4/6, TCP, UDP, ICMPv4/6, IGMP and Raw across Ethernet, PPP, SLIP, FDDI, Token Ring and null interfaces, and understands BPF filter logic in the same fashion as more common packet sniffing tools, such as tcpdump and snoop.

NMAP

web: http://nmap.org/

Licence:

Platform: multiplatform

Description: Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free and open source utility for network exploration or security auditing.

I
 


ifstat

 

web: included inside of linux distros

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description: ifstat is a tool to report network interfaces bandwidth just like vmstat/iostat do for other system counters. It can monitor local interfaces by polling the kernel counters, or remote hosts interfaces using SNMP.

 

ipgrab

web: included inside of linux distros

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description: Ipgrab is a network debugging utility not unlike tcpdump except that it prints out detailed header field information for data link, network and transport layers. 

iptraf

web: included inside of linux distros

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description: iptraf is an ncurses-based IP LAN monitor that generates various network statistics including TCP info, UDP counts, ICMP and OSPF information, Ethernet load info, node stats, IP checksum errors, and others.

P


Packetyzer

web: http://www.gotomanage.com/

Licence: free

Platform: windows

Description: Packetyzer provides a Windows user interface for the Ethereal packet capture and dissection library. Ethereal is used by network professionals around the world for troubleshooting, analysis, software and protocol development, and education. Ethereal has all of the standard features expected in a protocol analyzer, and several features not otherwise available.

tcpdump

web: included inside of linux distros

Licence: free

Platform: linux

Description:

 


W


Windump

web: http://www.winpcap.org/windump/
Licence: free
Platform: Win
Description: WinDump is the Windows version of tcpdump, the command line network analyzer for UNIX. WinDump is fully compatible with tcpdump and can be used to watch, diagnose and save to disk network traffic according to various complex rules. It can run under Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista. WinDump captures using theWinPcap library and drivers, which are freely downloadable from the WinPcap.org website. 

Wireshark

web: http://www.wireshark.org/

Licence: free

Platform: multiplatform

Description: Wireshark® is a network protocol analyzer. It lets you capture and interactively browse the traffic running on a computer network. It has a rich and powerful feature set and is world's most popular tool of its kind. It runs on most computing platforms including Windows, OS X, Linux, and UNIX. Network professionals, security experts, developers, and educators around the world use it regularly. It is freely available as open source, and is released under the GNU General Public License version 2.
