How to compare old plugin performance with updated one?


I have updated an old plugin(Version 1.6) to Version 2.2. I have to show that, the new plugin performas and Shows exactly the same data as the old one(for some certain PCAP files). How can I show this? It is impossible to manually show the comparison.

One Answer:


Use tshark to output to a text file and compare old and new. Using the -T fields -e fieldname1 -e fieldname2 -e ... options you can select particular fields of interest.
