Project Summary

etherpoke is a scriptable network session monitor.

etherpoke defines three events to which a hook (system command) can be assigned. The event hook can be any program installed in the system.

SESSION_BEGIN is triggered when the first packet matching the filter rule is captured.

SESSION_END is triggered when the time since the last matching packet was captured exceeds the session timeout.

SESSION_ERROR is triggered when it is no longer possible to proceed with packet capture, most likely due to network interface error. This event cancels out any future triggers of SESSION_END, until SESSION_BEGIN is triggered again.

Since version 2.3.0, etherpoke has support for socket notifications (TCP protocol), allowing remote clients to be notified when any of the events is triggered.
