Wireshark Logging Time

asked 2024-06-10 09:46:34 +0000

Hi team,

I am using python socket scripting to establish the TCP connection with Hardware via Ethernet connection. I am not setting any ack timeout in script. The TCP Round Trip time in windows OS set as 1ms. But when I log the data in wireshark I could set the ACK received at my PC from Hardware is 6ms (time difference between packet sent and ack received).

Is the time displayed in wireshark is the actual time of ack received or it is varied from the real time ack timing?

Wireshark can only show you what's in the capture file. So if those are the timestamps of the packets in the capture file then those are what the capture engine collected, based on the timing provided by the Operating System it is running on. Normally these are pretty accurate, so I would hazard to say yes these are the actual times.
