[SOLVED] Wireshark : Packet size limited during capture

Wireshark and tcpdump are the two of the most useful tools in debugging a certain issue. Every now and then I use tcpdump to capture network packets in linux or unix platform and use wireshark to analyze the captured packets. I can’t imagine myself debugging network related issues without those two tools, it will be crawling in the dark =)

Recently we have an issue pertaining to HTTP transactions and I have to use tcpdump to capture the packets to see the exact data send out to our server. I got the ¬†tcpdump with the http transaction however in wireshark I got a message with “Packet size limited during the capture“, you can see below screenshot.
