VISUALIZATION BENEFITS If you have ever analyzed a large log file with tens of thousands of entries, you know how hard it is. A visual approach significantly facilitates the task (as compared to using textbased tools). Visualization offers a number of benefits over textual analysis of data. These benefits are based on people’s ability to process images efficiently. People can scan, recognize, and recall images rapidly. In addition, the human brain is an amazing patternrecognition tool, and it can detect changes in size, color, shape, movement, and texture very efficiently.

If you were to cover this line of text halfway, you would still be able to guess the words. This principle can be used to eliminate bounding boxes around graphs. A lot of charts do not need the bounding box; the human visual system “simulates” it implicitly. • Similarity: Be it color, shape, orientation, or size, we tend to group similar-looking elements together. We can use this principle to encode the same data dimensions across multiple displays. If you are using the color red to encode malicious IP addresses in all of your graphs, there is a connection that the visual system makes automatically.

Packet size 6:: Packet size indicates the total size of the packet that was transmitted. 38. 37. 3 4467: 4 S 2672924111:2672924111(0) 4 ack 1052151846 win 64240 Sometimes it is interesting to dig deeper into the packets and extract some other fields. This is especially true when analyzing higher-level protocols inside the TCP packets. You could potentially even extract user names. Wireshark, for example, extracts user names from instant messenger traffic. Be careful when you are doing your visualizations based on network traffic.
