Calculating packet overhead.

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Shashank Khanvilkar, Jun 23, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    I want to calculate the overhead (TCP/IP headers, Data-link headers
    etc.) that get appeneded to a packet, on a set of networked computers.

    I know the brute force technique of using snoop or tcpdump. However I
    want to know if there is anything else that i make use of.

    Thanks for any help.,
