Wireshark Review

Regardless of network size, it provides intelligence about any type of data packets, especially during a security attack, although buffer size of captured data should be unlimited and archived.

Valuable Features:

Some valuable features of Wireshark are deep packet inspections based on the capturing process with it's sniffing capabilities.

Improvements to My Organization:

In order to be more intelligent about all the bits/frames/packets/data traversing your network regardless of how small or large the network is, Wireshark is a network analytic tool which provides such an intelligent information in a network.

Wireshark is that intelligent, not only for production environment alone but also aids study about the packet fields that may exist in any type of packet header of data flowing in your network.To view how all the classes of QoS marking in a packet are and can be used to also sniff packets during reconnaissance phase of a network security attack.

Wireshark provides better understanding on how the bits are set for different fields in a packet header.

It is indeed a very good tool which all network administrators need to be familiar with.

Room for Improvement:

Maximum buffer size of captured data should be unlimited and should allow ability to archive all old captures (not save option) in real time, it should support a destination location where old captures can be directed for long term storage.
