over five hours have gone by, and no answer. Why is that?
a. Too difficult?
b. people think you've been too lazy to use google.

There's nothing wrong with being lazy. They say it encourages efficiency.

So here it is: iptables and ulog.

You really should let them stew (marinate?) for a least 24 hrs.

traffic analysis

Hi,,

If you want to analyze the network traffic in linux, you can get started with using tcpdump..With the help of tcpdump you can save the output to a file, for the required duration and then analyze.
For example.. You can find the below things.
1.syn requests from a particular ip
2.http payload
3.dns queries for a particular domain
4.ftp payload
5.search string in traffic.

Some good little programs for what you might be looking for:

EDIT: This is where I got tcpdstat:
https://github.com/netik/tcpdstat/archive/master.zip

It looks pretty good:
