For tcmdump or dumpcap, is it possible to have the dropped packets counter statistics during the capture? Currently only available at the end of the capture...
How can I know if my capture is missing packets in real-time?
Update: I've discovered that pressing CTRL+T (sending SIGINFO according to manpage) during a dumpcap -q capture, displays some info on demand, maybe could add afix to display dropped packets if the info is available:

As an example:
tshark -i 1 -qz icmp,srt
This will show # of packets lost and also a % of packet loss.
hope this is helpful, John
