I am trying to view the AMQP traffic that is generated by my Azure ServiceBus client (using the AMQP transport type in the connection string for Event Hubs). When I type AMQP in the filter I get no entries in the activity list that I can inspect. The service bus client's AMQP activity should be showing up there correct?

Not sure what I am missing here. Any ideas would be appreciated.

It looks like wireshark is just not recognizing packages sent via a .NET service bus client as using the AMQP protocol? I see a lot of TCP activity using the default AMPQ port of 5671. How do I get wireshark to recognize these as AMQP protocol packets?

the problem is, that dissection of AMQP traffic only seems to work for unencrypted connections.

As Paolo Patierno said in his blog: "Of course, we can’t collect this traffic if our client connects to Azure Service Bus (queues, topics/subscriptions or event hubs) because this traffic is encrypted with an SSL/TLS connection."
