8.24. TCP Stream Graphs

Show different visual representations of the TCP streams in a capture.

Time Sequence (Stevens)
This is a simple graph of the TCP sequence number over time, similar to the ones used in Richard Stevens’ “TCP/IP Illustrated” series of books.
Time Sequence (tcptrace)
Shows TCP metrics similar to the tcptrace utility, including forward segments, acknowledgements, selective acknowledgements, reverse window sizes, and zero windows.
Average throughput and goodput.
Round Trip Time
Round trip time vs time or sequence number. RTT is based on the acknowledgment timestamp corresponding to a particular segment.
Window Scaling
Window size and outstanding bytes.
