Xmas WishList 2011 :-) Looking at the yellow LED of the probes, I presume that their Ethernet IF operates in promiscuous mode. Even if not... I'd like to see some (easily configurable) measurement available, at least the rate of broadcast-packets on the probe's net. On a more elaborate basis, maybe according to simple paramters like a protocol/port combination. Would this make sense to implement and be of interest to others? Thanks for consideration, Wilfried. PS: yes, I do know about Netflow, WireShark and similar, but the beauty of the ATLAS Probe Approach is imho in the ready-nade UI :-)
