Open-source alternative to Wireshark

Wireshark is a popular network protocol analyzer that is widely used by network administrators and security professionals to troubleshoot network issues and analyze network traffic. It excels in providing comprehensive capture and deep packet analysis, making it a robust tool for diagnosing network issues and understanding traffic patterns.

On the other hand, Requestly, much like Wireshark, is an open-source tool, which offers even more customization and flexibility for users. With Requestly, you can easily modify and redirect HTTP/S requests, manage CORS headers, and create API mock endpoints which are not available in Wireshark. Moreover, it allows you to create rule-based redirects and recordings to automate your testing and debugging tasks.
