I would like to record the number of TCP connections made to a windows box on port 8080.

The reason I want to do this is for licensing, we currently use webmarshal to provide a web proxy services and are going to migrate to a Bluecoat.  The Bluecoat is licensed on a per connection basis.  I want to determine over a 1 week period what my TCP connections to the Webmarshal service are so that I can determine the appropriate number of licenses to purchase.

Thanks.

Hi,

You can sniff all the traffic and apply the TCP filter to it using WireShark:

www.wireshark.org

Incase you have not worked on WireShark then:

wiki.wireshark.org

You can also generate a report of the TCP connections to your Server.

I have used wireshark considerably, not really what I am looking for, I would almost rather write a script to record the number of connections via netstat every 10 minutes and write this to a file then I can graph the output in excel.

Was sort of hoping that performance monitor would do this...
