Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 331211
Latest captured packet does not appear on the list while capturing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
Wireshark does not show the last packet captured on the packet list.
For example if someone sends an UDP NetrSendMessenger packet and my
PC sends back a ICMP reject packet, only the received UDP packet is shown
right away. When the next packet is captured, even minutes later,
the previous sent ICMP reject packet is shown, with the correct time
so I assume it was sent immediately after the UDP packet was received.
But again the latest packet just captured does not appear on the list.
When stopping capture, the latest captured packet appears on list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start wireshark, give root password.
2. Start capturing, with "not arp" as capture option.
Latest captured packet not shown on the list.
List of captured packets should be uptodate.
I noticed also that yum-updatesd leaves connections
to mirrors in CLOSE_WAIT state for hours, with 1 byte in Recv-Queue
for each connection. I don't know if this has nothing to do
with the problem with wireshark ... ?
Better Summary: "Wireshark - List of captured packets missing the latest one"
This is known bug which seems to be fixed in latest upstream built. See comments
I'm closing this bug as Fixed UPSTREAM, will appear in next version of wireshark.
