TrafficWatch: Usage And Impression

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


  • Packet capture from PCAP files or live network interfaces.
  • 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

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

If you only want to scan a single protocol

python -f path/to/your.pcap -p DHCP

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.
