Description (last modified by tomek)

Even though we will work on making this tool as smart as possible, there always be cases when manual investigation is required.

Traffic should be dumped in pcap (tcpdump) format.

Ideally, it would use some existing library to write traffic in proper format.

Due to time constraints, I don't think we will be able to do this in the November 2011 milestone. We could consider temporary solution that could work, though:

Before test: fork() + system("tcpdump -i eth0 dhcp")

Run tests as usual

After test: kill tcpdump
