Linux Packet Analyzer or Logging Tools


Hello,

I am a linux novice and I am just wondering if anyone knows any good linux analyzers or tools? I have a cisco switch I have been playing with and I created a tap port on the switch to log and record all traffic on my switch. I am hoping to use linux to store create and store my log files for packet analysis. Perhaps someone here knows some ideas of how I can do this in linux?

Thanks for your help,

Dan

Look into tcpdump if you are looking to do network packet capturing.
