This is our old Q&A Site. Please post any new questions and answers at ask.wireshark.org.

I have a massive capture file which I would like to experiment by playing back on an interface using tcp replay, but I would like to know what to expect in terms of faithfulness of the replay keeping in mind facts that file is massive arounf 4 Gb, and I would like to compare its performance with other replay tools like bittwist, so I need a way to start both of them to synchronize before replay. I know conventionally could just start the replay at the same time . but that seems naive to do am looking for a cleaner way to do so. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

tcpreplay is a most-virtuous, temperant process, and will hold fast to its reasoned understanding of the pcap file format in spite of circumstance such as a large packet capture size. :)

Do you have a specific question in mind when you ask about the "faithfulness" of the program? The FAQ may help? http://tcpreplay.synfin.net/wiki/FAQ

If you mean whether it honours timestamps or not, it does, but depends on how well-formatted the .pcap file you're reading into it is.

This is a question for a tcpreplay support forum I think. not Wireshark Q&A.
