How to disable CLI "Update list of packets in real time" option

asked 2021-01-25 15:07:13 +0000

The documentation explains how to enable "Update list of packets in real time" using a CLI command but how we can disable it because this option is enable by default.

-S This option specifies that Wireshark will display packets as it captures them. This is done by capturing in one process and displaying them in a separate process. This is the same as “Update list of packets in real time” in the “Capture Options” dialog box.

Using the -o <name>:<value> option to set the required preference, in this case capture.real_time_update, e.g.

 wireshark ... -o capture.real_time_update:FALSE
