Dear wireshark experts, could you help me to understand one thing? I did perfomance test with iperf. During test I collected dump on iperf client side. My question is: Which formula is used by Wireshark for creating TCP throughput graph? According to wireshark, avarege RTT value of TCP stream is 0,04 sec and TCP window (on server) is stable and equal 2048K bytes But in this case Bandwidth of TCP stream should be around 400 Mbps (TCPwindow / RTT). Real test bandwidth result (and Wireshark also shows this) is 61,2 Mbps

Thanks in advance, Alex.

The Iperf client and server itself should tell you the throughput details.

Can you provide details of what MTU you used? what's your Window size ? and also tell me if you tried in single direction or bi-direction.
