Okay.
So, If I am sending continuos stream of data at the line rate(1gb/s) and if I am using wireshark to capture the content, it will crash after sometime
due to memory exhaustion. Is there any way to bypass this ? (Any free function/some other work around)
Any suggestion from your side would be extremely helpful. Thanks in advcane

Are you assuming that epan_get_frame_ts() returns a pointer to a freshly-allocated structure that must be freed when the caller no longer needs it?

If so, no, it doesn't.  You do not need to free the structure.
