The Weekly Roundup – Wireshark

This week’s roundup explores network monitoring and security software. Let’s find out what people are saying about Wireshark, a free and open-source packet analyzer. It is used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software and communications protocol development, and education. Here are a few highlights:

  • Engnr246 says: “One of the best products that can provide the details of what is happening with an application and the full life cycle of the response time… [but] not always simple to setup and get the filtering right when capturing data.”
  • Techie says: “You can easily analyze each and every packet captured from the network based on protocol types like TCP, IP, UDP, etc.”
  • Mgrntwrk381 says: “[the] GUI layout is user friendly and straightforward, which provides protocol-based color coding and comprehensive graphical representation of raw data.”
  • RonSNunes says: “I’ve been working with Wireshark for a long time, since back in the days when it was still called Ethereal. Since then, there has been no alternative for me for Packet Sniffing. Wireshark does exactly what I want and leaves me with no need to look elsewhere.”
