    edit : Had some time and discovered that this is quite a nice sniffer.

    Thanks MrBrain, I tried it. Maybe its good for home or single PC use, I tried to check on the network for the the ARP flood and BAM !! my system became slow as hell !!

    I think WireShark/Ethereal is still best for high volume traffic. Thats my observation.

    You're welcome :)

    By the way, the listed minimum specs for processor: "Single 2Ghz Intel-based processor (Dual-core recommended)"

    My laptop is a Core2 Duo 2.2Ghz with 2GB RAM, still seems be the lower end of the specs spectrum for NetWitness.:doubt:

    Should have looked the minimum specs up, before babbling :mad:
    But with such high specs, I wonder where they are aiming with product ??
