make wireshark drop packets that do not match filter criterion

asked 2022-09-14 06:35:47 +0000

i am using wireshark 3.4.8 with windows 10 pro OS .
My system is IPTV client so thousands of data packets are coming in every second on ipv4 interface on which I am running live capture.
After approximately every 127 second i get a igmp packet .
After sometime wireshark is not able to capture packets further due to restriction in RAM and storage space which I understand is reasonable.
Is there some way that wireshark only saves filtered packets and discards rest .
For example after every 10 seconds - all packets not matching filter criterion are lost forever .

This is what capture filters are for. Although not as versatile as display filters, they are _the_ answer to limiting collected data.

Capture filter is helpful. Thanks.
