If it's about VoIP, SIP or Internet Telephony but it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, post it here.

It is useful to see what traffic is going through the network, but i find it difficult to use and you have to get lucky with the packets as most of the time it is just unreadable garbage.

I used it once to sniff out some torrents on the network and managed to get some headers. If i spent some time studying wireshark i'm sure i could do a lot more with it, but it's just something i use when needed for a task.

How long did it take before you learned how to use it efficiently and apply it to a practical business environment?

I was able to learn the basics pretty quick but I still found the program slightly difficult to navigate and understand.

And make good use of this information for my business.
Wireshark allows you to view the activity inside a network.

It allows you to see the individual packets traveling in and out of the network. It's very handy for troubleshooting.
