SQL clients are blocking. (There may be some non-blocking, but I'm not
aware of any GPL compatible non-blocking SQL client). That means that
wireshark should wait for the write to be acked before capturing the
next packet and that would probably cause many packets to be dropped,
thus rendering the whole thing useless.
There's nowhere mentioned, that it has to be done "online" :-)
IMHO Off-line scripting is the way to gets packets into a database.
Yes, but the main question Guy noted is still valid: Which database schema to use?
Without a good idea what to do with the database data, it's pretty 
pointless to put it into the database ;-)

    Data I/O (e.g. Files)


      The ability to dump packet data/info into an SQL database. (How
      would the schema for the database be specified, and how would the
      information to be dumped to the database be specified? A change
      that hardcodes a particular schema and set of data to be dumped
      would be of limited use. -/Guy Harris/)

Thanks a lot!
