Lost / Dropped Packets?
Posted: Nov 5, 2004 9:24 PM

Is there a way to monitor a conversation, and see the amount of dropped or re-transmitted network packets?

I find that seeing data packets move aross the network is good, but I also need to know how many of those packets are re-transmitted packets. This will show me network issues for that particular segment, host, etc.

Thanks in advance.

No, it's not supported. It would use a lot of memory, since we need to keep track of each conversation and check if the last sequence number matches the previous sequence number.
