Wireshark is a tool that could be used to get to know how your computer’s network is.

Wireshark measures the transfer’s speed, through the information that has been previously captured and stored in the hard disk. Wireshark is capable to work and to support without any problem more than 480 types of distinct protocols, which makes it in an excellent tool to server’s administrators.

This way, Wireshark is compatible with any kind of tcpdump system files being also possible to treat with TCP reconstructed section which facilitates to de administrator since this data are showed with a well defined interface. Wireshark is not only one more applicative, it is one more tool for those who need to manage and to supervise day by day a work team’s net system.
