6 ways to filter HTTP traffic with Fiddler

I've been taking notes from Eric Lawrence's recorded presentation at MIX10 on Fiddler for future reference. This is the third part, check the earlier two tips if you haven't already read them -

Fiddler offers multiple ways to filter the HTTP traffic for analysis with varying degrees of granularity so that you can jump to the point of specific interest -

1. Application Type Filter - You can click on this Filter that's in the status bar to toggle between one of these options -
  • All Processes
  • Web Browsers
  • Non-Browser
  • Hide All

2. QuickExec - The QuickExec box is a thin black box just above the Fiddler status bar that lets you type commands instead of clicking on the menu options. Just type CLS when you wish to clear the Web Sessions, use ?word to look for a specific word among the Session URLs or filter URLs that are of a specific size using the commands > size and < size. Typing HELP lists all commands that you can use in the QuickExec box & explains what they do.

3. Process Filter - A recent feature to filter down to a particular process. Drag & drop the Process filter icon onto the application of interest.

4. Filters tab - This provides the most exhaustive filtration

5. Find Sessions - Accessible from the Edit menu or Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut, this dialog box aids in carrying out a deep find

6. Rules - The "Hide Image Requests" & "Hide HTTPS CONNECTs" options accessible from the Rules menu can filter out the generally distracting Image Requests & HTTPS CONNECTs from the captured traffic.
