 Network Forensics: Tapping the Internet

O'Reilly brings us: Network Forensics: Tapping the Internet.

"How much attention you need to give the hardware you use for network monitoring depends to a large extent on the complexity of your network, the amount of data at the points you wish to monitor, and how good a job you want to do. If you are trying to capture packets as they travel over a 384kbps DSL link, a 66Mhz 486 computer will do just fine. If you are trying to make extended recordings of every packet that goes over a fully-loaded gigabit link, you will find it quite a challenge to build a suitable capture platform and disk farm."
