Networking monitoring/logging/sniffing software like WireShark, anyone?

Dear Experts,


I am talking about Windows platform. I am using WireShark that is generating huge huge log files, say 10 GB per hour. I need to cut that size.

Now there is ISA, that I cannot use due to some reason.

Is there another software I can use instead of ISA or WireShark for logging network traffic, as effectively as they do.


Thanks in advance.

Take a look at Packetyzer from Network Chemistry - open source and very good....

you are talking of two completely different products and two completely different sets of functionality. Wireshark is exactly what it looks like, An extremely good packet capturing and analysis tool. ISA Server is the top software-based firewall/proxy/application gateway in the world, that provides traffic capturing and analysis as part of its output.  

An equivalent to Wireshark would be Microsoft's own Net Monitor 3.2. An equivalent to ISA (purely in respect to data logging) would be any good firewall product such as Websense.

You can always set filters on the wireshark to reduce the amount of packets you capture to only relevant information.
You could look at something like the NetVCR

Thankyou very much, I am looking at Packetlyzer.

As far as NetVCR is concerned, so its not a freeware like WireShark :(

Thanks
