nbd-trdump — translate an nbd transaction log into human readable form


nbd-trdump translates a transaction log produced by nbd-server (specifically by the transactionlog configuration directive) into human readable form.

The command acts as a traditional UNIX filter, i.e. the transaction log must be supplied on standard input, and the human readable output is sent to standard output.


The following may be output:

A request packet sent from the client to the server.
A reply packet sent from the server to the client.
The handle of the packet.
The command sent.
The offet from the start of the disk.
The length of data.
The error returned.
