Pcap.net Performance

Jul 11, 2011 at 12:50 PM

Hello to everyone and thank you for your great efforts. I want to learn whats the performance of this wrapper. What is highest transfer rate that i can capture data without packet loss.

All i want is listening a network device, capturing packets and writing them to a dummy file for later use. So how successful is that wrapper. Can i get a 100mbit/s without packet loss?

Thanks for reading

Hi varstas,


Basically you better just try.

WinPcap supports such speeds with ease and this wrapper should be very light weight and not slow it down.

If your processing of the packets won't be heavy, there's no reason you won't be able to process such speeds in a reasonable computer.


I hope this helps,

Thank you so much for your answer.

Can i listen a device with 2 filters at the same time? Is it doable?

Yes, it is doable.

Just create two PacketCommunicators with the same device.
