Absolute time in tshark

asked 2018-10-05 08:32:03 +0000

Hi,

Could you please advise how to display absolute time in tshark output. Now I'm trying to add "-e _ws.col.AbsTime" but nothing is displaying in this field.

Full command looks like:

tshark -r /var/lib/tshark/dump/trafficdump.pcap -Y "(fix.MsgType ~ D or fix.MsgType ~ F or fix.MsgType ~ G) and not tcp.analysis.retransmission" -T fields -E header=y -e frame.time -e frame.timeepoch -e fix.MsgType -e fix.ClOrdID -e fix.SenderCompID -e fix.ExecType -e fix.TargetCompID -e _ws.col.AbsTime

Tshark version: TShark (Wireshark) 2.6.3 (v2.6.3)

Thanks in advance!

In case you don't want to modify Wireshark columns or even necessarily have to rely on them, one alternative is to make use of the -o <preference>:<value> option to explicitly set the gui.column.format. For example:

tshark -r /var/lib/tshark/dump/trafficdump.pcap -Y "(fix.MsgType ~ D or fix.MsgType ~ F or fix.MsgType ~ G) and not tcp.analysis.retransmission" -o 'gui.column.format:"Time","%t","TimeEpoch","%Cus:frame.time_epoch","MsgType","%Cus:fix.MsgType","ClOrdID","%Cus:fix.ClOrdID","SenderCompID","%Cus:fix.SenderCompID","ExecType","%Cus:fix.ExecType","TargetCompID","%Cus:fix.TargetCompID","AbsTime","%Yt"'

Run tshark -G column-formats for the list of "built-in" column formats.

You could also create a separate Fix profile in Wireshark with whatever columns you want and then just have tshark use that profile. For example:

tshark -r /var/lib/tshark/dump/trafficdump.pcap -Y "(fix.MsgType ~ D or fix.MsgType ~ F or fix.MsgType ~ G) and not tcp.analysis.retransmission" -C Fix

Refer to the tshark man page for more information.

The _ws.col.xxx field specifies only output a value if you have a column named xxx in your profile, i.e. they allow you to output any configured column.
