Run Wireshark as a service / autorotate capture logs?
Posted on 2014-01-23
Is it possible to automate Wireshark to run as a Windows Service?
What I need is for a Windows box running Windows XP or Windows 7 to capture network packets ALL THE TIME, automatically restarting wireshark if the system is restarted.
Additionally, I would like for the capture to auto-rotate if possible, where I set the maximum amount of storage that a capture would occupy and have the oldest captures purge so that the newest captures could come in.
If there is no option to auto-rotate, I could maybe automate the restarting of Wireshark every night and have a batch file auto-purge old captures at this time.
Is anyone doing anything like this proactively?
