I am in the process of troubleshooting a latency issue. The application is written using ICEfaces and is using SSO. I am wondering if there is a better filter to use other than ip.addr of the workstation and server. I can see a lot of pauses between packets coming from the server. I am not sure if this is due to lack of user input or actual slowness of the server to respond.

If you wonder what the user is doing you should do a capture while watching & documenting what he IS doing. That is usually the best way to stop wondering if a delay is based on a human or a machine delay.

Packets coming from the server should usually come without delay, because users are usually not on the server but on the client, and the server has to process incoming requests as fast as possible. To determine that you need to capture as close to the server as possible, because otherwise you'd be guessing if there is also network transport delay.
