EtherApe is a graphical network monitor modeled after etherman. it displays
network activity graphically, showing active hosts as circles of varying
size, and traffic among them as lines of varying width.
It features link layer, ip and TCP modes, color-color coded protocols

filter traffic to be shown, and can read traffic from a file as well as
live from the network.
