Tracewrangler Review - Edit your trace files

Many of my clients or I can not share trace files because sensitive public ip addresses, port numbers or data is easily seen within the trace. Unfortunately many vendors would benefit from the trace to address a performance or bug within their product.

In the end I typically resort to blurred screen captures, a lot of writing and more phone conversations to convey what I am trying to explain.

Because of this extra effort, I must admit that as a general rule, I shy away from offering trace files.

Stuart, one of my readers passed on this little gem called, "tracewrangler" that can 'sanitize' or change your trace files.

I've used it a few times this week and found it quite good.

it is a portable app in the sense that there is no installation required and whips through a 1MB file in a blink of an eye. note that this utlity only supports Wireshark's new pcapng format.

Hope you like it.
