PacketBoy is a sophisticated protocol analyser capable of decoding a large variety of commonly used networking protocols. It provides an intuitive display of captured packets along with their decoding. Facilities are provided to filter incoming network traffic and decode and display monitored packets. It will allow you to select either the real-time monitor or capture console from the tools menu on the PacketBoy screen. You can also choose to display both. The real-time monitor provides an accurate representation of the load on your network (as a percentage of total available bandwidth). It is displayed as the load chart on the real time monitor window. The other window you can display is the capture console (selected from the tools menu) which is central to primary functions of PacketBoy. The capture console allows you to start, pause, stop and view packet captures, as well as setting packet triggers and filters. The menu bar also provides access to these functions, as well as the ability to load and save captures.
