Hey everyone, Im trying to figure out a way to get the percentage of TCP traffic to total traffic from a capture. Ive been trying to do it with tcpdump or tcpstat or wireshark but I`m at a loss with how to do it.

Load the capture file in Wireshark and apply "tcp" as a display filter. Look in the status bar, and Wireshark will show the number of displayed packets, and also the displayed packets as a percentage of the total number of packets.
