Name        : libpcap
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.1.1
Release     : 4.fc16
URL         : http://www.tcpdump.org
Summary     : A system-independent interface for user-level packet capture
Description :
Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network
monitoring.  Libpcap can provide network statistics collection,
security monitoring and network debugging.  Since almost every system
vendor provides a different interface for packet capture, the libpcap
authors created this system-independent API to ease in porting and to
alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet capture modules
in each application.

Install libpcap if you need to do low-level network traffic monitoring
on your network.
