VX sniffing provides VX network protocol analysis files in *.pcap format for troubleshooting and analysis. Sniffing can be enabled / disabled in the Command Line Interface. A simple use case for sniffing is:
- Enable sniffing in CLI
- Run a test case
- Disable sniffing in CLI
Sniff files are saved in the Sniff directory of the VX node which can be collected in the same way as the debug logs via FTP. They can be viewed by using network protocol analyzers like Ethereal or Wireshark.
