Wireshark has a rich feature set which includes the following:
  • Standard three-pane packet browser

  • The most powerful display filters in the industry
  • VoIP analysis
  • Live capture and offline analysis are supported
  • Read/write many different capture file formats: tcpdump (libpcap), NAI's Sniffer (compressed and uncompressed), Sniffer Pro, NetXray, Sun snoop and atmsnoop, Shomiti/Finisar Surveyor, AIX's iptrace, Microsoft's Network Monitor, Novell's LANalyzer, RADCOM's WAN/LAN Analyzer, HP-UX nettl, i4btrace from the ISDN4BSD project, Cisco Secure IDS iplog, the pppd log (pppdump-format), the AG Group's/WildPacket's EtherPeek/TokenPeek/AiroPeek, Visual Networks' Visual UpTime and many others
  • Capture files compressed with gzip can be decompressed on the fly
  • Hundreds of protocols are supported, with more being added all the time
  • Coloring rules can be applied to the packet list, which eases analysis
