Name        : netsniff-ng
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 0.5.6
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://netsniff-ng.org/
Summary     : A high performance network sniffer for packet inspection
Description :
netsniff-ng is a high performance linux network sniffer for packet
inspection. Basically, it is similar to tcpdump, but it doesn't need one
syscall per packet. Instead, it uses an memory mapped area within kernelspace
for accessing packets without copying them to userspace (zero-copy mechanism).

This tool is useful for debugging your network, measuring performance
throughput or creating network statistics of incoming packets on central
network nodes like routers or firewalls.
