Description

Hi,
Sorry if this was already requested, afaik, no.
I think that it would be great, very nice to have some tool to troubleshoot traffic, and wether it's allowed, or denied, on real time, pointing out related rules.
Something like the WatchGuard traffic monitor (https://www.watchguard.com/help/docs/help-center/en-US/Content/en-US/Fireware/system_status/traffic_monitor_web.html) that would allow users to see which rule is preventing something, or just see the traffic for something unusual, or unexpected. Maybe sometimes aliases and multiple rules make difficult to tell which rule blocks, or lets something pass, so a visual aid would be priceless.
I think that the pieces to make that possible are already there, like tcpdump, and maybe packet capture. Real time packet capture can already be achieved (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9t_7JKpsmg), so I think that real time view, and the rule that "makes the decision" would be great to have.
Thanks!
