While Wireshark has a rudimentary support for decoding of the Netlink messages, it understands only a small part of the configuration data. We’re looking for an individual or a team who would enhance it. The nice thing about this project is that every bit counts! We’re not looking for a complete coverage.
This is a great opportunity to learn a few bits about the Linux kernel itself (and maybe more than just a few bits…). The Netlink protocol is largely undocumented, thus reading of the Linux kernel source code will become your second nature! Don’t worry, we’ll not let you drown.
