Subject [jira] [Commented] (METRON-193) Metron - PCAP Support for Windows
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 05:52:12 GMT


James Sirota commented on METRON-193:

At what data rate are you thinking of capturing?  The reason we chose DPDK is because it runs
directly on the card.  Other option we considered was Ntop/PfRing

>          Issue Type: Wish
>         Environment: Dev
>            Reporter: Tom James
>            Priority: Trivial
> Metron uses DPDK for packet capture. It seems DPDK does not have official support for
Windows. If we can enable Metron PCAP module to extract packets from Windows environment as
well, that would be a nice addition.
> Right now, I'm thinking of a few possible solution,
> 1. WinPcap based pacpy
> 2. Dedicated native pcap client based on WinPcap libraries
> 3. NDIS/WPF based driver/client for dedicated pcap support.
> Please come forward with any suggestions, queries and support.
