Richard Achmatowicz commented on JGRP-324:
I've created a new CVS project for the JGroups Wireshark plugin on SF under the name
wireshark-plugin and uploaded a *draft* version of the plugin to SF.
You can visit the project at
. The project contains
the sources for the plugin, some sample Wireshark capture files created using the JGroups
Draw application, and instructions on how to get the plugin working with Wireshark.
This plugin has been only minimally tested over UDP, and will be subject to continued
development over the next couple of months. Up until the time we feel it is stable and
release a "version", please keep in mind it is in a state of development and use
is "as is".
A few points:
1. The plugin should be able to display complete JGroups bundles (i.e. the TP header, all
Messages in a bundle, as well as all Headers within a Message. At present, only TP and
PING headers are fully processed; for the others, we just display the header key (e.g.
STABLE) and the header size.
2. There is a user preferences section available from
Edit->Preferences->Protocols->JGroups. The main options here you will need are:
(i) telling Wireshark which port to associate with JGroups messages
(ii) turning on debugging fields - which show pretty much all fields in the JGroups
Message, as opposed to those which users would really be interested in.
The next immediate development steps will be trying to get the UI presentation right and
then testing over more JGroups configurations. Later development will deal with handling
