Hello, I'm doing some test on TCP performance and I'm trying to catch the evolution of the window size through Wireshark. Below you can find the graph and as you can see, there are parallel lines instead of a more linear output... Is this normal ? I'm more searching for a step-like evolution of the window.

Thanks for your suggestions

could you add more information?

Like: * Have a display filter applied to the graph? * Is the reported window size from one TCP session and one direction?

Maybe sharing the pcap (s. can also help.

If you're going to provide an image, you should include it in the question instead of linking to it, as the image isn't necessarily accessible by everyone due to certain company internet policies.
