In the past decades computer network have kept up growing in size, complexity and along with it thenumber of its user is also being increased day by day. Hence the amount of network traffic flowing at eachnode has increased drastically. So to keep a track on these nodes a packet sniffer is used. Sometimes apacket sniffer is called a network monitor or network analyzer. Many system administrator or networkadministrator use it for monitoring and troubleshooting network traffic. Packet sniffers are useful for bothwired and wireless networks. The purpose of this paper is to show the basics of packet sniffer, how it worksin both switched and non switched environment, its practical approach, its positive vs negative aspects andits safe guards.
