Re: tcpdump logfile viewer

I have written a perl script that churns through tcpdump files and generates reports on the data.
When I do a security audit, one thing I do is a 24 hour packet capture, where I plug my Linux box into the core switch 
and mirror all traffic on the core to my linux box where I run:

tcpdump -n -q >capture.file

Then I run

dumpscan.pl capture.file

I gather 24 hours of data, which sometimes is several hundred gigs of data, then I run it through my perl script which 
generates my reports.  I take these raw traffic reports and plug them into excel where I generate these charts and 
graphs. (See Attached)

I also tossed these files up to my site - http://www.appiant.net/audit so anyone can download them.  

If you use it, and you like it, drop me a note.

Joel
