LINX

LINX is an inter process communication protocol developed by Enea used for local and remote communications in distributed systems.

History

LINX is based on the IPC method - called LINK - used in Enea's OSE operating system. A Linux kernel module implementing the protocol is released as open source.

Protocol dependencies

  • Ethernet: So far LINX can only use Ethernet as its transport protocol besides shared memory. The ethertype 0x9999 used right now is not assigned by IEEE.

Example traffic

Wireshark

The LINX dissector is fully functional but could be improved for sure:

  • Reassembling of fragmented packages
  • Improve RLNH handling
  • Improve info column
  • ...

Preference Settings

none

Example capture file

Display Filter

A complete list of LINX display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

  • Show only the LINX based traffic:

     linx 

Capture Filter

Capture LINX traffic only:

  •  ether proto 0x9999
