I'm essentially looking for a tool that has this functionality: SMART

The tool was written by Cisco but hasn't been updated in almost a decade. I tried running it and while it works for small pcap files, it throws segmentation faults when you feed it something substantial.

Is anyone aware of another tool that could draw this kind of graph from a pcap?

  • This is also a network professionnal question about a tool to replace a faulty one. The day I will look for such a skilled tool I will look on a professionnal grade web server and not on a discussion group. This web server exists and it is here :). This isn't an open call to discuss the advantages of different commercial solutions.

  • @danielAzuelos Thanks for the help. I actually saw that post and the well explained answer but that is for someone who was trying to get a topology diagram from a capture, which of course can't be done, at least not from a capture from a single point. What I'm looking for on the other hand is a simple map of "who is talking to who and over which protocols", which you can extrapolate from a packet dump (just hoping I won't have to end up coding something ugly myself, would rather a pretty and time-saving solution ;).
