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

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
