I am performing capture on all devices, and end with messed output. It would be helpfull to have additional column with interface name.

Is there a way to add such column to packet list view?

The Linux 'all' interface doesn't provide that information in its cooked capture, therefore it can't be presented.

A simultaneous capture into pcap-ng would allow for this, but that hasn't been developed, yet.

Not even minor number of interfaces? Shame.

If you have multiple interfaces and want to keep traffic separated, just launch multiple instances of dumpcap and capture from each interface to a separate file. You can merge later if you need to using mergecap.
