Packet Diagram feature in Wireshark

In Wireshark 3.3.0 development release, and 3.4.0 stable release and later, you are going to find a hidden gem.  Wireshark call this the Packet Diagram, and I absolutely love it.

Let’s say you are a pen-tester or a test engineer who is looking at a packet capture and you want to document what is happening within a packet or series of packets.  This new feature of Wireshark makes this a breeze.  Similarly, if you are learning or teaching how a protocol works, this feature will animate a packet structure so you can more easily explain or visualize what the packet looks like.

Watch this “follow me” video to see how it works.
