ovs-tcpundump(1)             Open vSwitch Manual            ovs-tcpundump(1)

NAME         top

       ovs-tcpundump - convert ``tcpdump -xx'' output to hex strings

SYNOPSIS         top

       ovs-tcpundump < file

       Common options:
              [-h | --help] [-V | --version]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The ovs-tcpundump program reads tcpdump -xx output on stdin, looking
       for hexadecimal packet data, and dumps each Ethernet as a single
       hexadecimal string on stdout.  This format is suitable for use with
       the ofproto/trace command supported by ovs-vswitchd(8) via
       ovs-appctl(8).

       At least two -x or -X options must be given, otherwise the output
       will omit the Ethernet header, which prevents the output from being
       using with ofproto/trace.

OPTIONS         top

       -h
       --help Prints a brief help message to the console.

       -V
       --version
              Prints version information to the console.
