How is delta time calculated


what does Delta time calculate? I am using version 2.2.6. I have other filters which are self explanatory like "Time since previous frame in this TCP stream" and "Time since first frame in this TCP stream". I have a capture where all these have different values and have some captures where "Delta Time" and "Time since previous frame in this TCP stream" are equal. So I am confused how Delta time is calculated.
