I am supposed to work on a monitoring program
i wonder how i should chase different sockets' activities?
1. what program is listening on busy ports?
2.how much traffic does it make?
3.what data are these ports sending?
For one, take a look at "netstat". For two and three, take a look at "tcpdump", "WinPcap", etc. for capturing. Take a look at Wireshark for viewing. And ... if money is not an issue, Corvil and TS-Associates make some cool hardware based network monitors.
