Hi Guys,

Would anyone be able to shed some light on the following two areas when operating in monitoring mode:

  1. How do I monitor my remaining packet storage when in monitoring mode? (ie how can I tell if I'm running out of space for monitored packets).
  2. How does the stack deal with full storage? (ie does it fall-over, drop old packets etc)

Many thanks

Hey Scribe,

If I am not mistaken you are talking with respect to the network stack and not the application stack.

Correct me if I am wrong.

If you are talking with respect to the application stack, the stack_overflow snippet under apps/snip will be a pointer for your problem.

Would be great if you can provide more details.

Best Regards,
