Difference between PCAP, PCAPNG and CANoe Specific BLF Logging Format

BLF files contain also:
- Link Status
- erroneous Ethernet packages
- frames of other bus systems (CAN, LIN, …)
- specific information of Vector Network Interfaces (Ethernet checksum, direction, frame duration, HW channel number...), if the Extended Ethernet Logging CANoe option has been previously selected:
