Overall Satisfaction with Wireshark

Receiving the TCAP messages has been never easy. This opensource tool easily capture TCAP during the calls for me on different INAP services. We also easily evaluate messages through Wireshark now. And we keep track of packet data information exchange between different networks very conveniently. Wireshark helps us now to easily debug the network data exchange issues and fix them quickly.

Pros

  • Possibility to analyze packets from various interfaces (LAN,Wifi,BT,USB).
  • Ability to integrate with GNS3 easily.
  • Its a free tool and available on all platforms.
  • Provide comprehension analysis on communication protocols.

Cons

  • Learning curve is a little steep.
  • Encrypted network traffic read is a a struggle.
  • User interface can be developed
  • Packet Capture
  • Traffic Flow analysis
  • Filters in the tool to investigate
  • Ability to download and share the log files.
  • Identifying bugs in the network has never been smooth and near-perfect.
  • Wireshark has made sure our equipment and software is working properly via analyzing network data.
  • Analysis of IP packets and Sip call flaws has saved us a lot of time and confident result.
Firstly, Wireshark is a free tool!
Easy to implement and its opensource. We had many reviews & recommendations from users in the industry. All our requirements were available in the tool.
