Dropped packets reported by summary statistics

Where is OmniPeek/Engine dropping these packets? Is it dropping them from the capture buffer or does it count how many packets are being dropped from the ring buffer? The only analysis module is the summary statistics and the capture is writing to disk. Trying to determine if the loss is incurred from traffic bursts and or the capture buffer is not enough. How is the buffer affected when a capture is saved to disk? --specifically the file size/new file every X in relation to the capture buffer.

Please contact Tech Support so they can get all the details on your Capture Options to determine the cause of the dropped packets:
