Hi, Im currently working on my Bachelor theses, and have a problem. The goal is to show differences among TCP variants. As far as know, the biggest difference is based on Congestion Avoidance, which Id like to demonstrate by unplugging one site of the communication and than take a look at how quickly those different TCP types can recover from that "disconnection". To determine that, i need a very exact output (graph) that would show that. IS IT POSSIBLE IN WIRESHARK?

Thank you very much in advance,

Radim Havlicek

Yes, Have you looked at the different TCP stream graphs? Especially the tcptrace variant? (See: "Statistics -> TCP StreamGraph -> Time-Sequence Graph (tcptrace)")

thank you for your answer. Yes, i did but than doesn`t provide all i need, which is:exact time (yes), bandwidth (yes), current RTT (no), congestion window (no). I need to determine where exactly the connection is back (which packet), and when exactly does the throughput gets into the same level as it was before the disconnection.

I would also make use of the Statistics:Flow Graph which represents the details and direction of the TCP packets as they flow between the hosts.
