Understanding Connection Dynamics
Connection Dynamics helps you see the packets of a network conversation. It is most useful for discovering where delays are occurring and verifying if it is the network, application, client, or server.
 
Connection Dynamics shows a selected conversation graphically and attempts to show the inter-packet delay as a spacing between packets. Packet-to-packet delay times are shown graphically, allowing instant identification of long response times. The visual display can be a brief overview, giving you highlights of each packet in the conversation, or a detailed view of the packet's contents if you click a specific packet. If you see delays in query response time from a database server, it could mean that your server's processor is overloaded and needs to be upgraded. It could also help pinpoint problems with custom applications running on servers.
