This dhcp packet tracer is a service I developed to track requests from my clients for web hosting and other resources. This is useful because I have clients who regularly ask me for resources and I want to know how their site is doing.
The site I developed this for is based on a tool I found called Pingdom. Pingdom is a free service that allows you to see how frequently a site is responding to requests. In this case, the site I developed is dhcp packet tracer, or dpkt, which essentially is a tool that tracks every request for web pages and resources that are served from my web server.
It’s an interesting site because you can track the size and traffic of a site pretty quickly. The site has a lot of useful information, but it’s also very basic. It also doesn’t take any security precautions. You can click on any link to send it to your site and the site will automatically redirect to your site so you can see what’s going on.
Its a bit more advanced, but there are a lot of options on the site. For example, you can track the size of your web pages. Then you can also see what your web pages are serving up. With dpkt, you can also analyze the traffic being sent to your site and see how it compares to the traffic being sent to other sites.
There are many possibilities, but they all suck, especially with the dpkt. Its very easy to do.
Dpkt is an awesome tool that lets you see what websites are being sent. If you don’t have a dpkt on your site, you can search and find the ones that are on your site, and then when you click on a site it will take you to the dpkt. There’s very little overhead in this.
My site has dhcp and dpkt enabled by default. You can also do it on your own website. I can’t speak for the other sites that have it, but most of them have it too, so it’s not that hard to set it up.
For what it’s worth, I have a dhcp packet tracer on my site for my own convenience. You can easily find out what sites are being sent to your site by running a search for “dhcp on my site” and then going to your site and clicking “view dpkt”.
There are some really interesting and useful things out there, like the new one called ‘B.E.I.’ by EoL. It’s a pretty useful tool, but I would probably recommend it for a professional who enjoys it.
The packet tracer is a simple tool that shows you the entire packet that is being sent to you. It’s a little difficult to read at times because it’s not all that clear sometimes, but it’s definitely easier to use than a packet analyzer.
