You search for specific patterns. For example for somebody pinging more than n addresses in a specific time frame. If you know what you are looking for, you can set something up to do it easily. 2. You look for something strange. You will need some kind of statistical method then. They have a tendency to produce false positives from time to time, so you better look at the results closely. > I did have one somewhat silly question.. if you look at the statistics > of a Fast Ethernet port, and it is doing both 2000 pps out, and 2000 pps > in (pretty much equal in/out) but hardly any bandwidth at all can anyone > think of a single application that would mimic that behavior?
