Subject [jira] [Commented] (DRILL-5432) Want a memory format for PCAP files
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 03:20:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-5432?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15992131#comment-15992131

Ted Dunning commented on DRILL-5432:
------------------------------------

Grouping by TCP stream now works.

The only remaining significant issues are:

1) rebase to track master (should be trivial since all changes were to new files)

2) decide whether to support pcap-ng now or later (likely it will be later when somebody asks
for it)

3) measure speed

> PCAP files [1] are the de facto standard for storing network capture data. In security
and protocol applications, it is very common to want to extract particular packets from a
capture for further analysis.
> At a first level, it is desirable to query and filter by source and destination IP and
port or by protocol. Beyond that, however, it would be very useful to be able to group packets
by TCP session and eventually to look at packet contents. For now, however, the most critical
requirement is that we should be able to scan captures at very high speed.
> I previously wrote a (kind of working) proof of concept for a PCAP decoder that did lazy
deserialization and could traverse hundreds of MB of PCAP data per second per core. This compares
to roughly 2-3 MB/s for widely available Apache-compatible open source PCAP decoders.
> This JIRA covers the integration and extension of that proof of concept as a Drill file
format.
