Capture and decode (Ethereum) JSON RPC traffic

Project description

[![Build Status](](

# rpc-sniffer This tool captures network traffic and decode them if they contain (Ethereum) JSON RPC. This might be useful in the following scenarios:

  • You want to know the exact RPC requests and responses sent to and from your Ethereum node.
  • You want to debug and understand what web3 sends out.
  • You want to capture the contents web3 sends out in order to use them in a different program.

# Installation

The following assumes you already have Python virtualenv activated. If not you may need to add sudo in front of the command and the pip command.

  • Via the script

` git clone cd rpc-sniffer python install `

  • Or via pip

` pip install rpcsniffer `

# Usage TODO

# Limitations

  • This tool does not support encrypted SSL traffic (e.g. when you interact with an node).
  • This tool does not support RPC traffic that spans multiple packets (development is in progress for this feature).
