Hi,

   C or C++  will be fine. Bash shell script (collection of commands) need to use the exist commands to do it.
You need to familiar with those network traffic analysis commands first.

bash itself cannot do it, like most other shells too. Well, perl and tcl can (which are some kind of shell too:-)
Go with your favorite language (C, C++) and use a network library like libpcap
