Src/dst -vs- client/server?

What is the difference between the src/dst dashboards and the client/server dashboards?

The simplest way to think of it is that the src/dst dashboards provide data for directional connections while the client/server dashboards is bidirectional.

As the diagram illustrates, the initial request shows the “client” as source and the “server” as destination. In the response the roles are reversed. The src/dst dashboard allows you to see information when the “server” is the source, or the “client” is the source, as well as when they are both the destination.
Also note that we typically designate the “client“ as communicating on a high numbered, ephemeral port, while the “server” is using a well-known, low port number.

Thanks, this is a helpful clarification.
