Out of curiosity, does the sample in the WinPcap developer's pack named wpdpack\Examples-pcap\savedump lose packets as well?
Have a nice day

Subject: [Wireshark-dev] ring buffer


I am implementing a packet sniffer with VS. I posted some time ago problems with losing packets, and someone here suggested me that it could be a problem between disk access and NIC speed.
I have done some research, and it seems this doesn't happen to Wireshark 
because of the use of a ring buffer. Can someone tell me which files (apart 
from ringbuffer.c) are involved in Wireshark avoiding packet loss? Can I use 
any configuration of Winpcap function parameters for losing less packets?
Thanks in advance
