Adviser is a user-space software which allows to capture and analyze traffic in high speed networks. This paper describes the integration of PF_RING library, kernel module and optional drivers into Adviser platform, to enhance the packet capturing. Adviser packet capturing is made through standard Linux Libpcap library and offers good performance and flexibility. PF_RING increases the packet capturing adding a new kernel module which speeds up the packet copying from kernel space to user-space. Therefore this integration will improve Adviser\'s traffic monitoring performance, reducing the CPU consumption in packet capturing.<\/span>
