TrafficWatch – TrafficWatch, A Packet Sniffer Tool, Allows You To Monitor And Analyze Network Traffic From PCAP Files


TrafficWatch, a packet sniffer tool, allows you to monitor and analyze network traffic from PCAP files. It provides insights into various network protocols and can help with network troubleshooting, security analysis, and more.

  • Protocol-specific packet analysis for ARP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, DNS, DHCP, HTTP, SNMP, LLMNR, and NetBIOS.
  • Packet filtering based on protocol, source IP, destination IP, source port, destination port, and more.
  • Summary statistics on captured packets.
  • Interactive mode for in-depth packet inspection.
  • Timestamps for each captured packet.
  • User-friendly colored output for improved readability.
  • Python 3.x
  • scapy
  • argparse
  • pyshark
  • colorama

  1. Clone the repository:

    git clone
  2. Navigate to the project directory:

    cd TrafficWatch
  3. Install the required dependencies:

    pip install -r requirements.txt

python3 --help

Packet Sniffer Tool

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-f FILE, --file FILE Path to the .pcap file to analyze
Filter by specific protocol
-c COUNT, --count COUNT
Number of packets to display

To analyze packets from a PCAP file, use the following command:

python -f path/to/your.pcap

To specify a protocol filter (e.g., HTTP) and limit the number of displayed packets (e.g., 10), use:

python -f path/to/your.pcap -p HTTP -c 10

  • -f or --file: Path to the PCAP file for analysis.
  • -p or --protocol: Filter packets by protocol (ARP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, DNS, DHCP, HTTP, SNMP, LLMNR, NetBIOS).
  • -c or --count: Limit the number of displayed packets.
