Super Sniffer is a combination of esniff.c (and all the sniffers derived

from it) and tcpdump. It also supports a plethora of other options including DES encryption on log files, user monitoring, forwarding logs regularly to a secondary host and NFS file handle sniffing. It uses the libpcap library which was developed by the University of California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors. It uses the GNU regular expression pattern matching library.

The libpcap library provides an interface to sniff packets on a variety of platforms including SunOS 4.x, Solaris 2.x, DEC OSF (Digital UNIX), IRIX, Linux, Ultrix 4.x and nearly all the vanilla BSD based systems such as BSDI, FreeBSD and NetBSD. Super Sniffer will incorporate in-kernel filtering using the Berkeley Packet Filter (bpf) on hosts that provide it. This allows network sniffing on busy networks with very fewer packet drops. Good for those major backbone networks.

Super Sniffer is meant to be a an all-in-one sniffer, combining all the

features of the scores of architecture-specific sniffers around. Super Sniffer will compile and sniff on virtually anything.
