Title : A Framework for Passive Packet Measurement

A wide range of traffic engineering and troubleshooting tasks rely on
reliable, timely, and detailed traffic measurements. We describe a
passive packet measurement framework that is (a) general enough to
serve as the basis for a wide range of operational tasks, and (b)
relies on a small set of primitives that facilitate uniform
deployment in router interfaces or dedicated measurement devices,
even at very high speeds. This document describes the motivation for
such a framework through several operational examples, defines the
measurement primitives (filtering, sampling, and hashing), and
illustrates their use.

feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
