All captured frames should have a timestamp attached, usually to the
microsecond; an option may be needed to have it based on the wall clock. You
did not bother to tell what kind of capture you are doing, so it is not
possible to point you to the exact place in the documentation.

Please remember to follow the mailing list's netiquette, in particular not
hijacking threads (too late for that this time) but all of it.
