Looking into network delays. Im plotting RTT for a TCP videostream. The graph shows spike for some packets, but i cannot find out how the RTT for these packets are calculated as i cant find the ACK for these packets.

So my question is how does wireshark calculate RTT when there apparently aren't any ACK to base the RTT caclulatation on?

Current issue: 10722: Round-Trip Time Graph plots incorrect values

Something close can be done with Statistics -> I/O Graphs plotting tcp.analysis.ack_rtt and filtering based on src/dst addresses.
(RTT time from WSUG: Figure 7.7. “TCP Analysis” packet detail items)
