I am going to install Wireshark and analyze traffic for a telco company. I have a scenario which I need technical advice on my hardware.

I want to capture high traffic on 100GB Network for every 10 seconds. What kind of hard disk size do I need? And how about memory. My OS will be in Ubuntu.

If you want to capture 100Gb/s you need some very serious hardware. Starting of with the rights NIC's. Then CPU and SSD storage as disk might not be fast enough. Not sure you should even try this as a sort of hobby.
