Description

horst is a small, lightweight IEEE802.11 wireless LAN analyzer with a text interface. Its basic function is similar to tcpdump, Wireshark or Kismet, but it's much smaller and shows different, aggregated information which is not easily available from other tools. It is mainly targeted at debugging wireless LANs with a focus on ad-hoc (IBSS) mode in larger mesh networks. It can be useful to get a quick overview of what is happening on all wireless LAN channels and to identify problems.

 * Shows signal/noise values per station
 * Calculates channel utilization ("usage") by adding up the amount
of time the packets actually occupy the medium
 * "Spectrum Analyzer" shows signal levels and usage per channel
Graphical packet history, with signal/noise, packet type and physical rate
 * Shows all stations per ESSID and the live TSF per node as it is
counting
 * Detects IBSS "splits" (same ESSID but different BSSID \u2013 this
is a common driver problem)
 * Statistics of packets/bytes per physical rate and per packet type
 * Has some support for mesh protocols (OLSR and batman)
 * Can filter specific packet types source addresses or BSSIDs
 * Client/server support for monitoring on remote nodes
