situation is called oversubscription. In this case, Wireshark won't note Dropped: x in the Status Bar. Instead, you may see numerous ACKed Lost Segment and Previous Segment Not Captured indications. Wireshark doesn't indicate that it has dropped any packets, because it hasn't—the switch didn't forward the packets to Wireshark. This switch span capture configuration is not going to work. You'll need to change where and how you capture traffic. A full-duplex tap is a great solution in this case,

that Wireshark saw a TCP ACK, but it did not see the data packet that is being acknowledged. If you were capturing on a spanned switch, the switch may be overloaded and unable to forward all the packets to Wireshark. A trace file containing numerous ACKed Lost Packet warnings should not be used for analysis. You do not have a complete view of traffic. Duplicate ACK (Notes) These notes indicate that a TCP host receiving data from another host believes a packet is missing. This is, in essence, a

Each side of a TCP connection maintains a receive buffer (receive window) for incoming data. If an application is slow taking data out of the buffer, it may fill. When the buffer becomes full, a host advertises a zero window condition—no more data can be sent to that host on that connection until the host indicates it has buffer space through a Window Update packet. Window Full (Notes) This note indicates that Wireshark has calculated that the packet will fill the available receive buffer space

the packet before sending it on to the router/NAT device. Analyst View: We would see a new Ethernet header (from C to D) and an IP header Time to Live value that has been decreased by 1. Point 4: What Would You See on the Other Side of the Router/NAT Device? The router/NAT device goes through the same routing process as the previous router before forwarding the packet. Additionally, the router/NAT device changes the source IP address (network address translation) and source port number while
