Does tshark has an option to report average bit/s statistics of the capture which appear in Wireshark at the end of Statistics > Capture File Properties?

I'm trying to automate a load test and need this in command line rather than GUI. I'm going through the tshark man page and it looks like -z io,stat,interval,"COUNT|SUM|MIN|MAX|AVG|LOAD(field)filter" option does not have it, does it?

I think TShark does not provide such option. You may try to use capinfos instead.

  • More specifically, capinfos -i <file> displays just the bitrate. capinfos -A <file> shows all information, including the bitrate.
