You will find additional development related tools in the Development page.
dumpcap a small program whose only purpose is to capture network traffic, while retaining advanced features like capturing to multiple files (since version 0.99.0). Dumpcap is the engine under the Wireshark/tshark hood. For long-term capturing, this is the tool you want.
editcap edit and/or translate the format of capture files
mergecap merges multiple capture files into one
randpkt random packet generator
rawshark dump and analyze raw libpcap data
reordercap reorder input file by timestamp into output file
text2pcap generates a capture file from an ASCII hexdump of packets
tshark is the command-line equivalent of Wireshark, similar in many respects to tcpdump/WinDump but with many more features. Learn it, use it, love it.
dumpcap.bat A batch file front-end for dumpcap.exe. It allows you to save dumpcap.exe settings, be notified of capture events or trigger dumpcap.exe capturing after a capture event occurs. It also provides hooks for performing custom actions through user-defined batch files, among other things. In order to get the most out of this batch file, it is recommended that you also download Handle.exe as well as mailsend1.17b14.exe, being sure to rename it to mailsend.exe. These executables should be saved either in a directory that is in your PATH or in the same directory as dumpcap.bat itself. (GPL, Windows)
maxfiles.bat A batch file to limit either the number of files in a directory to a specified limit, or the total disk space consumed by those files or both.
osXextraction, a macOS bash script to extract particular packet types from a capture file (NOTE: it's not very macOS-specific - some small changes should allow it to work on other UN*Xes, and would probably allow it to work on Windows with Cygwin as well.)

RtpH263DumpScript, a perl script to dump H.263 video data
update-ws-profiles and update-ws-profiles.bat automate changing strings in a collection of Wireshark profiles, e.g. changing "gui.filter_expressions.expr: eth.addr==11:22:33:44:55:66" to "gui.filter_expressions.expr: eth.addr==66:55:44:33:22:11"

Network Security Toolkit (NST 30-11210) Fedora-based (F30) bootable Linux distribution with best-of-breed open source network security tools. Provides a Web-Based frontend to the dumpcap network packet capture engine with dump file format: pcapng support. Simultaneous network packet capture on up to 4 network interfaces per Multi-Tap session is supported. Also provides IPv4 Address conversation geolocations and extensive HTML report generation from PDML and PSML packet decoding. See the article: Multi-Tap Network Packet Capturing for a tutorial and example usage. Capture starting can be delayed by a duration or an absolute date. Captures can be uploaded from NST to "CloudShark.org" or a "CloudShark Appliance" for viewing, sharing and analysis in a web browser (See: HowTo Use The NST CloudShark Upload Manager for additional information).
Packetfactory projects Various networking-related tools and libraries
Currently, raw USB traffic can be captured with Wireshark only under Linux, macOS, and Windows; see CaptureSetup/USB. If it's an Ethernet (or any other network related) USB adapter, Wireshark can capture e.g. Ethernet traffic from that USB device if the platform supports it (which it usually will do). On Win32 you can however try:
SniffUSB "minor" updates and port of usbsnoop 1.8 (v2.0.0006 Feb 2007)
SnoopyPro based on usbsnoopy, last updated (v0.22) in 2002 (GPL, Win32)
Also usbsnoop seems to be by the same developer, but updated through 2001-2003 (latest v1.8)
