Hi all,
When i run the wireshark for some time to capture live traffic the wireshark runs out of memory. Is it possible to configure wireshark so as to allocate more memory for the buffers? Is there any tool that supports catpuring packets for more memory than the wireshark?
Wireshark will use all the memory available--basically until malloc() fails.
