Hi everybody,

I am trying to figure out how to find the most common RTT for a packets from sender and receiver and back.

From what I observed from the RTT graph (Statistics | TCP StreamGraph | RTT graph), there is a horizontal straight line in the bottom of the graph, so is that the one called "the most common RTT" ?

Also I am not sure why some of the packet will have a much higher RTT value in a specific sequence number, what would cause this happen ? Updated: Just realized that those who have higher RTT value packets (outside the horizontal straight line) are all have a [ACK] flag...why a packets with a [ACK] flag would have a higher RTT ?

Thank you!

Here's the RTT graph of the trace file: alt text

can you upload a sample capture file somewhere and post the link here? If the file contains sensitive information, please use TraceWrangler ( to anonymize it.
