flow-merge — Merge flow files.

Synopsis

flow-merge [ -aghm ] [ -b big|little ] [ -C comment ] [ -d debug_level ] [ -o filename ] [ -z z_level ] [ file|directory... ]

Description

The flow-merge utility processes files and/or directories of files in the flow-tools format. The resulting merged data set is written to the standard output or file specified by -o. If file is a single dash (`-') or absent, flow-merge will read from the standard input. Unlike flow-cat, flow-merge interleaves flow records preserving the relative chronological order.

Options

-a
Do not ignore filenames that begin with tmp.
-b big|little
Byte order of output.
-C Comment
Add a comment.
-d debug_level
Enable debugging.
-g
Sort file list by capture start time before processing.
-h
Display help.
-m
Disable the use of mmap().
-p
Preload headers. Use to preserve meta information such as lost flows.
-o file
Write to file instead of the standard out.
-z z_level
Configure compression level to z_level. 0 is disabled (no compression), 9 is highest compression.
file|directory...
Process the files and/or directory.

Examples
