Wireshark provides detailed information about network traffic and usage through deep analysis

If you've ever wondered just how your network is being used, Wireshark may be the tool you have been looking for. Network analysers are nothing new, but they have a tendency to be impenetrable programs reliant on command line operations and provide information in a text based form which can be difficult to interpret. Wireshark boasts a graphical front end which makes it easy to analyse all traffic which travels over a network using a variety of protocols.

Data packets can be captured from both wired and wireless network and this information can be viewed live as it is captured or analysed at a later date. The wealth of information that the program can reveal about network usage is staggering, and support for plugins means that the tool can be extended to add new protocols and features further down the line. Wireshark is available for Windows, Linux and Mac, making it ideal for mixed platform networks .

As well as working with data that has been captured directly through Wireshark itself, it is also possible to analyse data that has been captured with the likes of Aircrack, tcpdump and CA NetMaster. Easy to configure colouring and filtering makes it simple to make sense of complex data, and while this is not a tool for the average home user, it remain powerful yet approachable.

Note the download here is for the Windows 64-bit version.

Version 2.2.4 changes:(Release Notes).

- Bug fixes

Verdict:

An immensely powerful tool which provides all of the information you could possibly need about network traffic

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
