Packet Capture in 10-Gigabit Ethernet Environments Using Contemporary Commodity Hardware

  title={Packet Capture in 10-Gigabit Ethernet Environments Using Contemporary Commodity Hardware},
  author={Fabian R N Schneider and J{\"o}rg Wallerich and Anja Feldmann},
Tracing traffic using commodity hardware in contemporary highspeed access or aggregation networks such as 10-Gigabit Ethernet is an increasingly common yet challenging task. In this paper we investigate if today’s commodity hardware and software is in principle able to capture traffic from a fully loaded Ethernet. We find that this is only possible for data rates up to 1 Gigabit/s without reverting to using special hardware due to, e. g., limitations with the current PC buses. Therefore, we… CONTINUE READING
