Inspect Network Traffic on Linux
It's rare for a server to work in isolation, and as such, networking — and therefore the ability to inspect network connections — is paramount. `tcpdump` and Wireshark are two tools for examining network traffic, both relying on the `pcap` API. In this lab, you have the option to use either `tcpdump` or Wireshark (or both!) to examine an uptick in traffic to your database server. _This lab is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat._
