using erlang to sniff network

Is it possible to use erlang to open a network device for sniffing...in
order to analyze traffic, etc. I need to see all the traffic on a
device, and I can run as root. This is on linux.

I want to do something like tcpdump | parser > logfile in a single
erlang program.

Any help is appreciated.

Mark.
