 A lot of CAN analyzing software is available. Most of them belongs to special hardware. But some are working with generic CAN drivers like COTI or can4linux. Simple but often useful analyzing tools are commonly available for free when buying the hardware. A lot of CAN analyzing software is available. Most of them belongs to special hardware.
