Hi,

I want to check the total time in sending and receiving the request from below line using WirteShark
(HttpWebResponse)webrequest.GetResponse();

How to do that?

Lets assume I am using a url to get response: http://195.187.1.23/MyHello.html
My machine IP address is: 198.175.32.204

In a HTTP GET response, the requested data (e.g. an HTML page) is returned. Wireshark will show the hex dump of the data in a new tab "Uncompressed entity body" in the "Packet Bytes" pane.


in the Bellow url - check 7.6.2

The total time for a single request can be measured several ways. Server latency is the time it takes for thje first reply to come back. File Transfer time for a single file is the time it takes that file to finish transferring. Page Load Time for a page is the time for all items on the page to be transferred.

To find in WS, right click the packet you want to start from and click Set Time Reference. Change your time column to Seconds Since Beginning of Capture (in the View Menu). Now, find the packet that you call then end point (could be any of the above) and simply read the Time column.

If you right click on the first packet in the stream and choose conservation filter then TCP it will apply a display filter of just that data if that helps narrow it down for you.
