Not sure if this has been discussed before, a quick search suggests not
(unless other terminology has been used...).
What I would love to see is beeing able to dynamically modify the
capture filter while capturing. As far as I have tested 0.99.6, it
seemingly allows me to edit the capture filter while capturing, but does
not seem to store nor apply it.
A typical situation where this feature might be useful;
- doing a network analysis in environments with high network load, I'd
be able to disregard for example all ARP-traffic once I've eliminated
ARPs as a potential troublemaker.
I've heard Microsoft Network Monitor has such a feature. But from the
little pcap-programming I've done, I've got a feeling it might not be
just a short diff... Comments?
