Meet Junkie the network sniffer!
As the heart of SecurActive network performance monitoring application
lies a real-time packet sniffer and analyzer. Modular enough to accomplish
many different tasks, we believe this tool can be a helpful companion
to the modern network administrator and analyst, and so we decided to offer it
to the public under a liberal license so that the Open Source community can
use it, play with it, and extend it with whatever feature is deemed
Compared to previously available tools junkie lies in between tcpdump and
wireshark. Unlike tcpdump, its purpose is to parse protocols of any depth;
unlike wireshark, through, junkie is designed to analyze traffic in real-time
and so cannot parse traffic as completely as wireshark does.
