2011-11-30Change the -z args for expert item. You can now give the minimum severity ↵Martin Mathieson1-6/+7

2011-10-23Speak of a "link-layer header type" rather than a "link-layer type"; aGuy Harris1-5/+6
given link-layer type, e.g. 802.11, might have multiple header types (802.11, 802.11 plus various radio headers, Ethernet), and multiple link-layer types might have the same header type (802.11 interfaces might supply Ethernet headers, and Linux loopback interfaces supply Ethernet headers as well). Point to tcpdump.org's page of link-layer header types, rather than to the net/bpf.h header that 1) might not exist on your system and 2) might not be up-to-date if it does exist. svn path=/trunk/; revision=39529

2011-09-27Add a new tshark option for being able to specify an alternate line ↵Chris Maynard1-10/+20

in README.devloper. Remove g_gnuc.h since it's no longer needed.

2011-06-05From Cal Turney:Anders Broman1-27/+89
1.) The resolution of the time values displayed by tshark's "-z io,stat, ..." should be increased from milliseconds to microseconds (from 3 to 6 decimal places) in order to be consistent with -z relative time-related options such as "-z smb,rtt" and "-z rpc,rtt" which display values to 5 decimal places. [Please note that separate enhancement requests for 6 decimal of precision in Wireshark will be submitted shortly.) 2.) The "frames bytes" column displayed in '-z io,stat' is too narrow, frames and bytes should each have 15 spaces like all the other column types. 3.) The types "FRAMES" and "BYTES" should be added to allow users to display these values separately and allow for filters to be specified. 4.) The 'SUM' option should allow for relative time values such as SRTs to be summed. This would be useful for the calculation of such things as request concurrency (total_SRT_time / duration). 5.) The tshark man page needs some corrections and readability improvements https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4915 svn path=/trunk/; revision=37555

2011-04-29From Edwin Groothuis via bug 5870:Stig Bjørlykke1-1/+5
The supplied patch adds a new option -O, which specifies a list of protocols (names can be found with the "-G protocols" option) to be fully decoded while the others only show the layer header. svn path=/trunk/; revision=36947

2011-04-11Add conversation tracking and tshark tap support to ICMPv6. Fixes bug 5810.Chris Maynard1-0/+11
TODO: Add a Wireshark tap or look into possibly using the stats tree instead. Also, like ICMP, the ICMPv6 payload appears to carry the sender's timestamp, so it might be possible to make use of this information to estimate the total SRT. (See bug 5770 for more details.) svn path=/trunk/; revision=36561
2011-04-06Add computation of median and change standard deviation calculation to "sample"Chris Maynard1-1/+2
standard deviation. Split statistics output onto 2 lines. svn path=/trunk/; revision=36501
2011-04-06IMHO capinfos, when finished processing, should exit with an error statusBill Meier1-81/+83
if an error occurred while processing. E.G.,: For the default (no -C option): 'capinfos invalid.xxx' or 'capinfos a.pcap invalid.xxx c.pcap' should exit with an error status (after processing all the input args) if there is an error for invalid.xxx. With this fix, I expect fuzz-test.sh (and list_protos_in_cap.sh and presumably other scripts) will work a bit more as as expected. svn path=/trunk/; revision=36487
2011-04-05Add ICMP tap support, and add a tshark tap to measure such things as:Chris Maynard2-2/+14
* Number of ICMP echo requests, replies, lost replies and percent loss. * Min, Max, Average SRT (Service Response Time), and standard deviation. (This is my first tap, so hopefully I didn't miss something, but we'll see ...) TODO: Add a Wireshark tap. svn path=/trunk/; revision=36480

support; TShark has read+write support. Additionally TShark can read a "hosts" file and write those records to a capture file. This uses "struct addrinfo" in many places and probably won't compile on some platforms. svn path=/trunk/; revision=36318
