flow-merge [ -aghm ] [ -b big|little ] [ -C comment ] [ -d debug_level ] [ -o filename ] [ -z z_level ] [ file|directory... ]
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.
Do not ignore filenames that begin with tmp.
- -b big|little
Byte order of output.
- -C Comment
Add a comment.
- -d debug_level
Sort file list by capture start time before processing.
Disable the use of mmap().
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.
Process the files and/or directory.
Merge all flow files begining with ft-v05.2001-05.01, use flow-print to display the results.
flow-merge ft-v05.2001-05-01.* | flow-print
