TRACE-CMD-LISTEN(1)                                      TRACE-CMD-LISTEN(1)

NAME         top

       trace-cmd-listen - listen for incoming connection to record tracing.

SYNOPSIS         top

       trace-cmd listen -p port [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The trace-cmd(1) listen sets up a port to listen to waiting for
       connections from other hosts that run trace-cmd-record(1) with the -N
       option. When a connection is made, and the remote host sends data, it
       will create a file called trace.HOST:PORT.dat. Where HOST is the name
       of the remote host, and PORT is the port that the remote host used to
       connect with.

OPTIONS         top

       -p port
           This option will specify the port to listen to.

           This options causes trace-cmd listen to go into a daemon mode and
           run in the background.

       -d dir
           This option specifies a directory to write the data files into.

       -o filename
           This option overrides the default trace in the
           trace.HOST:PORT.dat that is created when a remote host connects.

       -l filename
           This option writes the output messages to a log file instead of
           standard output.
