This submission will now wait until an administrator reviews it and chooses whether to add it to the directory. If you would like to become an admin, then visit the directory mailing list and introduce yourself.

Admins, this may be a request for a new entry. First run some searches for the page. Admins may create the page after making sure that it doesn't already exist under a similar name. (You may also want to edit the part of the URL after "/Entry/", then load that address, to make sure it is concise and doesn't contain strange characters or unwanted spaces.)

Admins, when you are done incorporating any needed changes from this page into a main entry, please edit this page and change the following text from: |Finished review=No to: |Finished review=yes. This helps keep submissions organized. (Note that doing this isn't what adds the entry to the directory.)

Name junkie
Short description programmable network sniffer
Full description A real-time packet sniffer and analyzer, designed to be easy to extend by plugins.

Compared to previously available tools junkie lies in between tcpdump and wireshark. Unlike tcpdump, its purpose is to parse protocols of any depth; unlike wireshark, through, junkie is designed to analyze traffic in real-time and so cannot parse traffic as completely as wireshark does.

In addition, junkie's design encompasses extendability and speed:

- plug-in system + high-level extension language that eases the development and

 combination of new functionalities;

- threaded packet capture and analysis for handling of high bandwidth network;

- modular architecture to ease the addition of any protocol layer;

- based on libpcap for portability;

- well tested on professional settings.
