def initTestModule (   self  ) 

This function is expected to be overridden by the child class.

Reimplemented from TestModule.

def run (   self  ) 

This method ist called after the start of the thread.

It runs tcpdump with the parameters set in the constructor. The tcpdump result [<process name>="">, <result code>="">, <timed out="" or="" not>="">] is written into the result list of the test case. If an error occurs (timed out or tcpdump returns error code) a log file including the output of the process is written into the working directory. The name of this log file has following structure: <test case="" description>="">_<process name>_<unix time stamp>.log
