The use of closed solutions from most known vendors to carry out network-monitoring tasks has turned out to be a questionable option given their lack of flexibility and extensibility, which has typically been translated into higher costs. Consequently, we study whether high-performance monitoring tasks can be carried out using off-the-shelf systems, the alternative to these pitfalls from the research community, consisting in the combination of open-source software and commodity hardware. We focus on sniffing and storing network traffic as one of the major tasks in any monitoring architecture. Specifically, we first review the keys to sniff traffic at multi-gigabit rates, and then present an experimental evaluation of commodity hard drives. Finally, the lessons learned from such studies and the performed experiments have conducted us to the development of an open solution, namely HPCAP, which sniffs and stores multi-gigabit traffic using commodity hardware without packet losses in very demanding scenarios.
