Improving Passive Packet Capture: Beyond Device Polling
by Luca Deri - Friday, 9 January 2004.
Passive packet capture is necessary for many activities including network debugging and monitoring. With the advent of fast gigabit networks, packet capture is becoming a problem even on PCs due to the poor performance of popular OSs. The introduction of device polling has improved the capture process quite a bit but not really solved the problem.

This paper proposes a new approach to passive packet capture that combined with device polling further improves it and allows, on fast machines, packets to be captured at (almost) wire speed.
