This is not really the tool for it. It's a power tool to look into every details of every bit that is transferred across the capture interface(s). What you are looking for is Performance Measurement data, which should be available if you happen to have a proper managed switch. Otherwise there are other tools that collect such performance data and present and/or report it a a convenient way. Nagios and Cacti come to mind.
