This project is no longer active and was put into the Outercurve Project Archive on 28-03-2013. The last release of the software is still available at https://connect.microsoft.com/site216/Network%20Monitor%20Parsers and the software repositories are still readable at https://nmparsers.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest, but further work has been suspended at this time. Please contact the Outercurve Foundation at info@outercurve.org if you require more information.


Welcome to the Network Monitor Parsers Project!

This project contains the latest updates for the Network Monitor parsers for open standard protocols, as well as the Windows and SQL Server protocols described in the MSDN Open Specifications. All parser development for those products has been done through this CodePlex site since November 2008. As a result, parser developers, enthusiasts, and the like can have access to the latest parser changes immediately. We welcome your parser submissions and input as well as your parser bug reports.

The Network Monitor Parsers project is now part of the Systems Infrastructure & Integration Gallery of the Outercurve Foundation. This is a milestone for the project, since the community can now direct the development through an independent Open Source foundation, with Microsoft a participating community member. We look forward to enlarging the parser usage community and attracting more protocol developers to contribute additional protocol parsers to enable interoperability among a wide range of technologies!
