I just finished a packet capture. I'm trying to save an I/O Graph with bandwidth usage information.

During the packet capture, I set some filters.

The view filter I set in the packet list view during capture is

ip.addr == and !tcp.port == 22

The capture is taking place from a different host than, so there's a lot of other packets captured.

For the I/O Graph I'm trying to create of traffic coming from I want to filter out all other traffic.

I created some filters to use in the I/O Graph tool (same ones worked in the previous version of Wireshark)

ip.addr == and tcp.port == 5678
ip.addr == and icmp
ip.addr ==

And so on.

Even though the bandwidth usage is completely different between icmp traffic and the traffic I'm capturing from port 5678, the graph remains identical.

This issue started since I installed the new version 2.0.1 this morning.

I could try and set capture filters, but that would mean I have to perform three or more captures

Have there been changes in the filter mechanism or is this a bug?

Seems to work for me. I'm presuming you are using the Qt version, not the legacy GTK version?

Can you provide a capture file in a public share somewhere, e.g. Google Drive, Dropbox etc.?

I'm not 100% sure, but I checked the About section in Wireshark and it says it's compiled with QT.

I included a capture with traffic between localhost and there is 21% SSH traffic, but I still cannot exclude that traffic in the I/O graph

Never mind.

This was a user error.

I did not check the columns correctly, and was filling in the display filter in the Name column.

Obviously it's working now.

It was not a Wireshark problem, thanks for helping anyway Graham!

I've created the graph showing the total traffic, icmp, port 5678 and ssh to\from the host. Looks OK to me.
