Abstract

Different formats of PCAP (Packet CAPtures) files are nowadays widely used for storing computer network communications. This paper outlines information about PCAP formats with focus on packets precise timing and order. In this paper we compare capabilities of different open-source tools for handling PCAP files and introduce our own tool for merging multiple PCAPs. Finally, we evaluate the performance of the implemented tool and compare it with existing implementations.
