VisualEther Protocol Analyzer 6
visually debug protocol interactions
Generate sequence diagrams and context diagrams from Wireshark output. The sequence diagrams provide a visual trace of the packet flow between different nodes. The collaboration diagrams give a birds-eye-view of the protocol interactions.
summarize Wireshark output...
Define templates to select messages and the fields to be included in the generated diagrams. VisualEther analyzes the Wireshark (Ethereal) output to generate documents that match the defined template. The template is defined as a simple XML file.
...while maintaining full message detail
Click on any message in PDF sequence diagrams. VisualEther shows you complete field level details of that message in a browser window.
reverse engineer system design
Reverse engineering system design by analyzing the message flow in an operational system. Design documents are generated from the Wireshark traces. The generated documents can be edited and reformatted using EventStudio System Designer.
automate diagram generation from wireshark pcap
Automate capture of Wireshark logs with tshark and then use the VisualEther command-line mode to generate sequence diagrams and context diagrams.
The VisualEther user manual quickly gets you started with Wireshark automation.
Learn how to define custom sequence diagram conversion templates. The document includes a step-by-step guide to picking the Wireshark fields and mapping them to sequence diagram elements.
