CloudBridge has long had the ability to take network traces and analyze it in tools like Wireshark. Network traces are captured in CloudBridge-specific PCAP format. The CloudBridge-specific format has additional connection information that makes it easier to troubleshoot issues. But this additional connection information cannot be analyzed using the official Wireshark tool available at So to help analyze this information, CloudBridge team has made custom modifications on Wireshark version 1.0.15. This customized tool contains a Wireshark plugin that can analyze additional connection information captured in the CloudBridge-specific PCAP traces.

We have published this customized Wireshark source code at CTX201113. This version was executed on CentOS 4.1.
