NFSTRACE ![NFSTRACE Logo](docs/pictures/logo64.png "Logo")
========

`nfstrace` is an NFS and CIFS tracing/monitoring/capturing/analyzing tool.

It performs live Ethernet 1 Gbps - 10 Gbps packets capturing and helps to
determine NFS/CIFS procedures in raw network traffic. Furthermore, it performs
filtration, dumping, compression, statistical analysis, visualization and
provides the API for custom pluggable analysis modules.

`nfstrace` is written in C++ programming language and supports the
following protocols:

- Ethernet
- IPv4 | IPv6
- UDP | TCP
- NFSv3 | NFSv4 | NFSv4.1 | CIFSv1 | CIFSv2

`nfstrace` has been tested on the following GNU/Linux and FreeBSD systems:

- Debian Sid [packages](https://packages.debian.org/unstable/main/nfstrace) [build-logs](https://buildd.debian.org/status/logs.php?pkg=nfstrace)
- Fedora 23
- OpenSUSE 13.2
- Ubuntu 14.04/14.10
- CentOS 7
- Arch Linux
- FreeBSD 10.1
- Alt Linux 7.0.5

You can find more detailed description at `docs/nfstrace_manual.pdf`

External Dependencies
--------

- PCAP library (core component)
- json library (used for libjson.so plugin)
- Curses (used for libwatch.so plugin)
- GMock (used for testing)

Building
--------

Since `nfstrace` is written in C++ you have to use `gcc` >= 6 or
`clang` >= 3.8.  Additionally, you need to install development version of
`libpcap` (version 1.3 or newer).

You can build `nfstrace` using [CMake](https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.5/index.html) (version 2.8.12 or
newer). From the top level project's directory run:

    $ mkdir release
    $ cd release
    $ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release ../
    $ make

If you want to use specific compiler you can set the `CC` and `CXX` environment
variables:

    $ CC="path/to/clang" CXX="path/to/clang++" cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release ../

If you want to specify different installation prefix:

    $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/your/path ../

You can use different build tools, compilers, packaging systems with required parameters.
Please refer to
[CMake](https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.3/manual/cmake.1.html), 
[CPack](https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.3/manual/cpack.1.html) and
[Reference Manuals](https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.3/index.html).


Installation
------------

You can install `nfstrace` to default location. After you build `nfstrace` simply run:

    $ sudo make install

If you're using rpm- or debian based Linux distribution you can try to generate
package for your system using `cpack`. Please note that you need rpm or debian
tools to be installed.

In order to generate rpm package:

    $ cpack -G RPM

In order to generate deb package:

    $ cpack -G DEB

After that you'll be able to install generated package using your package
manager.


Testing
-------

There are prepared dumps in `traces/` directory so you can perform quick sanity
check with the following command:

    $ make test

Please note that `ctest` is required in order to run tests, on some platforms
it is packaged separately from `cmake`.

Scripts will run `nfstrace` in different modes and compare its output with
reference results.
