I have a system that consists in a server and several equipaments. The server does a polling through each equipment, communicating with them all the time to check if they are ok, and it has a 1000ms limit for timeout, if the equipment does not respond in 1000ms the server will disable the equipment.

I am losing communication with the equipments with no reason and only the timeout alarme.

I was wondering if I could use wireshark to measure the communication latency between the server and a specific Ip equipment to be sure of the timeout problem.

How can I measure the latency communication with Wireshark?

Thank You,

Filter out the TCP stream, then look at the DELTA times to see the response delay.
