Packetsdump is a general purpose network diagnostic tool for LAN administrators, security professionals, programmers and students who are interested in network traffic transmitted between PC and the whole LAN.
There are some typical uses of Packetsdump:
1. Packet Capture and Playback
2. In-depth Packet Decoding
3. Network Traffic Statistics
4. Software Debugging
* Packet Capture and Playback
Packetsdump can show the snapshot of data in LAN and save these data to as a trace file for analysis later. It supports many packet trace file formats created by other sniffer softwares such as Ethereal, Network General Sniffer and WildPackets EtherPeek/OmniPeek, etc. Packetsdump is a packet replayer which also allows users to open a trace file of captured packets and play them back in the network.
*In-depth Packet Decoding
Packetsdump is able to capture all network packets transmitted on network and display the detailed packet decoding information in Hex and ASCII.
* Network Traffic Statistics
With Packetsdump 's network traffic monitor feature, users can quickly identify network bottleneck and detect network abnormities.
* Software Debugging
When you develop a network program or a web site, you may need to exactly know what it has sent and received. Packetsdump lets you to know all the data transmitted through your network. Let you follow the most concerned packets together and easily debug your programs.
* Realtime view network traffic.
* No bloat software, small and fast executables.
* Easy installation (requires no reboot) and uninstall.
