—The use of Ethernet/IP technology in automation
networks brought innovation only comparable to the
appearance of the field buses themselves. This work presents an
analysis of the behavior of a network through data monitoring.
This is accomplished by the scanning of Ethernet frames in real
time using sniffer software, in the search of communication
patterns among the industrial devices over the network. This
allows the comprehension of the normal operation of the
network aiming the detection of security issues and performance
