The code as follow below , maybe someone with exprience with such can help
Please advice 

import socket,subprocess
import os,time

sharkCall = ["tshark","-i" ,"1", "-w",os.getcwd() +'/smbsession.pcap']
sharkProc = subprocess.Popen(sharkCall,executable="C:/Program Files/Wireshark/tshark.exe")
localip = socket.gethostbyname(socket.gethostname())

a = 0

while a ==0:
    a =

ipflt = ''

listip = socket.gethostbyname_ex('media.isilon.gefen.local')[2]

for ip in listip:
    ipflt= ipflt+ "ip.addr==" + ip + "||"
ipflt = ipflt + "ip.addr==" + localip

if ipflt.endswith('||'):
    ipflt = ipflt[:-2]
print (ipflt)
b= os.path.getsize("//media.isilon.gofn.local/Media/New Text Document.txt")

tsharkCall = ["tshark","-r",'C:/traces_test/smbsession.pcap',"-Y",ipflt,"-T","fields","-e","ip.src","-e","ip.dst","-e","smb.file",\
               "-e","smb.path","-e","smb.time","-e","tcp.time_delta", "-E","header=y","-E","separator=,","-E","quote=d","-E","occurrence=f",\
               '> '+os.getcwd() +'/tracetemp.csv']
