Out of order impact?


I'm looking at a pcap with alot of "out of order" packets. There are some fast retransmission occuring but fast/Retransmission are rarely occuring as it seems to catching up pretty fast to the correct sequence number.

Does out of order have any impact if you don't see retransmission or will tcp seamlessy arrange them and present to the next layer/application

What usually causes out of order packets besides multipath? Buffering? Firewalls? Capture on local machine?

Don't think it will be possible to share the pcap.
