Hi , I'am trying to understand an smb load graph ..

analysing a sniffer trace with wireshark 1.12.4 gives : alt text

analysing the same trace with wireshark 1.6.2 gives : alt text

so it seems that wireshark no more uses integer to represent the values . i.e. the two graphs give the same value which is max 0.5 IO . ? Is that correct ?

It looks like this was an intentional change between these two versions.

The commit message for that change says:

IOSTAT: plot LOAD y-axis in number of I/O  not number of I/O times 1000
