GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.

This represents a small but useful sample of the full Qosmos Protocol Portfolio, comprising over 300 protocols and 4000 metadata. Unlike conventional packet dump tools, Qosmos NI_Dump can identify protocols using non-standard TCP or UDP ports, and incorporates an easy-to-use advanced filter expression language that enables users to zoom in on data of most interest to them, such as FTP transfers matching a particular filename or HTTP requests containing a particular keyword.
