What are the methods of determining the torrent traffic in console, using a utility tshark? At the moment I use the following command:

tshark tcp portrange 6881-6889

Are there other ways?

You can try this: bittorrent is a valid display filter and you can use it with tshark.

tshark -R "bittorrent" -any_other_options
