How do I get information about the processes corresponding to TCP and UDP endpoints?

Hi All,

I'm trying to get some process information using the fields:

tcp.proc.dstpid tcp.proc.dstuid tcp.proc.dstcmd tcp.proc.srctpid tcp.proc.srcuid tcp.proc.srccmd udp.proc.dstpid udp.proc.dstuid udp.proc.dstcmd udp.proc.srctpid udp.proc.srcuid udp.proc.srccmd

For example:

tshark -r wireshark_capture.pcapng -q -z conv,ip -T fields -E separator=, -E quote=d -e tcp.proc.srccmd -e tcp.proc.srcuid -e tcp.proc.srcpid

However my output is always blank.

Do I need to enable something first for Wireshark to capture this information?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you need to enable the "Display process information via IPFIX" TCP preference and the "Collect process flow information" UDP preference. (And, as the "via IPFIX" indicates, there needs to be IPFIX traffic to provide process information about the endpoints of a TCP connection or the sending and receiving endpoints of UDP traffic.)

If you haven't permanently set them in Wireshark, you can set them for a particular TShark run on the command line, using the name of the preferences, which are tcp.display_process_info_from_ipfix and udp.process_info, so you'd want a command like

tshark -o tcp.display_process_info_from_ipfix:true -o udp.process_info:true -r wireshark_capture.pcapng -q -z conv,ip -T fields -E separator=, -E quote=d -e tcp.proc.srccmd -e tcp.proc.srcuid -e tcp.proc.srcpid

Thanks for the response.

I tried what you said but still have no output. Looks like I have no IPFIX traffic. At present I'm just testing this between a few of Linux and WIndows hosts on the same network.

Cheers Lance.
