Hi, I want to reroute traffic when a router gets congested. To do this I want wireshark to pop off a file when there are too many retransmissions in a short period of time. I'll have some python detect that the file has been created.

You might be able to o this with tshark , filtering on retransmissions. Then you can count the instances an determine if there are too many in a given time.

Is there lua you can run in tshark that will stay with the counter instead of going to the network feed?
