Projects / esniff


esniff (formerly dbsniff) is a very basic set of tools useful for network traffic analysis and scripting across machines. It consists of three tools: esniff, nwait/npush, and loss_chk/loss_srv. esniff is a packet sniffer based on pcap that does certain things like traffic summaries (not better but hopefully easier than tcpdump). nwait and npush implement the DOS "pause" command working over the network. loss_chk and loss_srv are for checking the loss rate of a line.
