I am trying to capture and decode the data packets thru Wireshark. However, though can see the mellanox ports in the interfaces, no packets are captured when the particular interface was selected. - Running on Ubuntu 18.x / Mellanox mlx5 driver / Wireshark verison 2.6.x

Does it work with tcpdump when capturing on the same device?

Thanks Harris. Using testpmd+pdump, I am able to capture the packets on same device. If testpmd+wireshark is used on same device, then the msg shown is "No packets". The requirement is to use testpmd and wireshark to capture data packets.

Versions used: DPDK 19.x and Wireshark 3.x
