To all:

 

A suggested enhancement for Wireshark:

 

In the capture setup dialog, is it possible to add a “Capture Threshold” feature whereby Wireshark would only capture packets when the packet rate was above X packets per second?

 

I see this capability being helpful in detecting and therefore mitigating DoS attacks. 

 

Best regards.
