PCU scheduling and PACCH timeout question

Hello Holger,

The extraction was done manually from wireshark capture file. I have not created any script for this.

Steps were

*         Set time display format in wireshark capture for microseconds and from beginning of capture

*         Filter the log for TS 4 (control TS was chosen) and direction downlink ((gsmtap.uplink == 0) && (gsmtap.ts == 4))

*         Keep column display for GSM Frame Number in the wireshark capture

*         After this Print "output to file" utility in wireshark for "as displayed" converts the displayed capture into text

*         Copy entire text and delimit with whitespace in an excel sheet

*         Add formula for time difference and frame number difference between previous to next row (for time difference multiply by 1000 to get milliseconds)

*         These new rows will serve as further elements for plot and analysis

Dear Saurabh,

how did you extract the values? Did you create a lua script for wireshark/tshark? It would be interesting to automate this.

kind regards
