A running TShark process on the BIG-IP system has problems exiting when the user is finished capturing and presses CTRL+C while listening on a tmm VLAN or 0.0.


TShark does not exit as expected when pressing CTRL+C.


-- Using TShark on a tmm VLAN or 0.0. -- Pressing Ctrl+C to exit.


To recover, you can move the process to the background (CTRL+Z) and then halt the process, by running a command similar to the following: kill -9 'pidof tshark'

Fix Information

Ctrl+C now terminates TShark as expected.
