Is it possible to relate an usbmonX interface in Linux to a certain physical USB-interface on the host machine, with Wireshark? So you could say that packets Y (something like that):

27  6.062927000 3.3 host    USB 79  URB_INTERRUPT in
28  6.062979000 host    3.3 USB 64  URB_INTERRUPT in

...were captured from the USB interface Z.

I mean, while opening the interface overview and e.g. moving the mouse, I can see the packets increasing on usbmonX. But is it also possible to see the correlation between physical port and packets live by examining the dump?
