SHMIF_DUMPBUS(1)        NetBSD General Commands Manual        SHMIF_DUMPBUS(1)


NAME
shmif_dumpbus -- examine shmif bus contents
SYNOPSIS
shmif_dumpbus [-h] [-p pcapfile] busfile
DESCRIPTION
The shmif_dumpbus utility examines the bus of an shmif(4) Ethernet inter- face. The most useful feature is converting the bus to the pcap(3) file format for later examination. shmif_dumpbus itself is limited to dis- playing only very basic information about each frame. shmif_dumpbus accepts the following flags: -h Print bus header only and skip contents. -p pcapfile Convert bus contents to the pcap(3) format and write the result to pcapfile. The file - signifies stdout.
EXAMPLES
Feed the busfile contents to pcap: $ shmif_dumpbus -p - busfile | tcpdump -r -
SEE ALSO
pcap(3), shmif(4), tcpdump(8)
CAVEATS
shmif_dumpbus does not lock the busfile and is best used for post-mortem analysis of the bus traffic. The timestamp for each frame contains the sender's timestamp and may not be monotonically increasing with respect to the frame order in the dump. NetBSD 9.99 January 12, 2011 NetBSD 9.99
