Analysis of PCAP Files


I am working on network performance analysis of 10Gbps systems. I am planning to use netsniff-ng a high performance linux tool for capturing network traffic and sending it to pcap files. Anyhow, I am trying to measure things like network speed and throughput being pushed through. I am new to these tools and I was just wondering if anyone had ideas on how I can perform the analysis? I am now looking at Tshark and other tools that are shipped with the source code of netsniff-ng for reading the pcap files and providing these types of calculations. So like I said I was just wondering if other people out there have any ideas, suggestions, or comments.

Tigershark is an excellent idea to use, check out the recommendations here by the way:
