When invoked, wireshark displays packets in arrival order i.e. ordered by packet_num. I would like to invoke wireshark such that it starts displaying packets in order w.r.t. a particular column as it receives them. The wireshark is going to receive pcap-ng packets from a pipe.

Current command:

$ wireshark -r in_pipe

Desired command:

$ wireshark -r in_pipe display_order:absolute_timestamp

Is there a facility that allows us to do this?

Can you change the program that sends packets over the pipe to send them in packet time stamp order? That would render such an option unnecessary, as sorting by time stamp will be the same as sorting them in arrival order.
