Sequence Diagrams from Packet Analyzer logs/output files - Free

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by karthikbalaguru, Jan 1, 2010.

  1. Hi,
    Is there any free tool that help
    in generation of sequence diagrams
    that provide a visual trace of
    packet flow between nodes using
    the Wireshark(Ethereal) logs ?

    I searched the internet and got a tool
    called VisualEther, but it is not free :-(
    http://www.eventhelix.com/VisualEther/

    Any opensource or free tools for sequence
    diagram generation from Wireshark(Ethereal)
    logs ?

    If there is no free tool that could be used
    to generate the sequence diagrams
    from the Wireshark(Ethereal) log/output, then
    Is there a free protocol analyzer that has an
    accompanying software/utility that would
    be capable of generating the sequence
    diagrams from its captured output/log files?

    I am looking for this tool in Linux and
    Windows environment.
    Any ideas ?

    Thx in advans,
    Karthik Balaguru

    At US$ 149 for single license it seems a very reasonable cost.

    Is there a specific reason you want a open souce tool besides looking
    for a free solution?

    I wonder how hard it could be to add this functionality to Wireshark?

    It was so easy, in fact, that it already seems to be there.

    Statistics -> Flow Graph.

    Thx for the information :) :)
    I checked the 'Statistics -> Flow graph' optioin
    in Wireshark(Ethereal). It seems to be very nice !!

    Good link ! Thx.

    Interesting :)
    I wonder the reason/need for this 'Callflow Sequence
    Diagram Generator ' utility if Wireshark(Ethereal)
    has support in its 'Statistics -> Flow Graph' option !!

    I checked the 'Callflow' utility, it seems to be a
    collection of awk and shell scripts that produce
    callflow sequence diagram from the captured
    logs of ethereal(Wireshark) protocol analyzer.

    Can you lemme know the unique features
    that are provided by 'Callflow' utility in comparison
    to the features offered by the 'Flow Graph' that
    comes along with the Wireshark(Ethereal)
    protocol analyzer ?

    Was callflow developed to overcome some of the
    limitations of the Flow Graph feature provided by
    Wireshark(Ethereal) protocol analyzer ?
    Any ideas ?

    i just googled it
    i'm not your testing departement

    but when i read it was shell and awk scripts
    i assumed that for any decent *nix user it would
    be easy customisable.

    Okay!
    I checked with 'Callflow' support in the below link -
