I want the software to visualize web traffic in real-time and provide me with geeky data. The more data, the better.

    How would you like the results presented to you (graphs, tables, what?)? What have you tried so far? Feb 3 '15 at 15:31

    Is your server running on Windows, since you are asking for that? If not (which automatically implies that you are not going to run that software on your server - something you may not wish anyhow but you don't tell us), how do think it should collect the stats from your server?. Please take a step back and reread your question to check if it makes sense to someone who does not know your setup (my 'verdict': it does not, as it is now).

  • When you've followed Jan's advice and see which way it can work and what you really need, take a second round and define "provide me geeky data". Either the data already have been geeky, or the software has to fake some :) Honestly: As it currently stands, the question can hardly receive quality answers. A guide to check for editing your question with would be: What is required for a question to contain "enough information"?

  • This would be a good question, if you would be a bit more specific as asked by the comments above. Please do, so I can upvote the question.

You can use the developers console in your browser or use FireBug. Go to the "Network" tab, activate the panel and refresh the website. This is for a "client" in geek term.

For a server and client , install lib pcap and use a tool that can "watch" the network traffic like ngrep or tcpdump ( for Windows I think wireshark?).

All of those tools provide the finest fancy and geeky data. (will add links and more later)
