chaosreader - trace network sessions and export it to html format
Chaosreader traces TCP/UDP/others sessions and fetches application data
from snoop or tcpdump logs. This is a type of "any-snarf" program, as
it will fetch telnet sessions, FTP files, HTTP transfers (HTML, GIF,
JPEG etc) and SMTP emails from the captured data inside network traffic
logs. A html index file is created to that links to all the session
details, including realtime replay programs for telnet, rlogin, IRC,
X11 and VNC sessions. Chaosreader reports such as image reports and
HTTP GET/POST content reports.
Chaosreader can also run in standalone mode, where it invokes tcpdump
to create the log files and then processes them.
