28.5 Tracing TCP Dynamics

The behavior of TCP is often observed by constructing a sequence number-vs-time plot. Typically, a trace is performed by enabling tracing on a link over which the TCP packets will pass. Two trace methods are supported: the default one (used for tracing TCP agents), and an extension used only for FullTcP.
