Rate is a traffic analysis tool, designed to help a network administrator to see what is happening at a router at the moment. Rate uses statistical and stream-oriented methods, and will never produce an output stream at a speed beyond human perception. The output is less accurate, however. Rate features four different operating modes, designed to perform the following tasks: estimating overall traffic rates, determining nodes generating the highest traffic, determining connections and flows generating the highest traffic and extracting strings from packets.
