  • PPP Gatekeeper
    PPP Gatekeeper is a daemon which manages PPPOE connections supporting various levels of redundancy and failover.
  • ptcap

It does not save the actual data or headers. It works on ethX or cooked devices like ppp0. It uses Postgres embedded SQL to insert the data, pcap to capture traffic, and pthreads to capure and write at the same time. Pcap filters can be specified on the command line. Logs go to syslog.
  • pTRTd
