Summary : There are many open source tools available to do packet capturing and analysis. Virtually all networkers use these tools. However millions of packets per seconds are just too much for general-purpose hardware. This is a problem as 10 Gigabit networks allow for millions of packets per second.The obvious solution for that issue is to lower the data rates by filtering out ’uninteresting’ data out before it gets processed by the general purpose computer hardware.
