- Subject: control of lua dissectors at run time for better performance

I have written LUA disectors for Wireshark packets. When I have
integrated this lua dissectors with wireshark and start wireshark to
capture live packets, I observe that wireshark slows down. Also
whenever I tries to stop the wireshark, it takes many 10’s of seconds
to accept the command.
How can I increase the performance of wireshark?
Currently I have registered 25 udp ports to dissects the message. Is
it possible to use multi threaded dissectors based on udp port. Can
you give me link for that?
Is there a way to control whether the LUA script should be engaged or
not from the Wireshark GUI – e.g. an option to disable/enable select
LUA script at runtime without messing with the init.lua file.
