ovs-tcpundump - Man Page

convert "tcpdump -xx" output to hex strings


ovs-tcpundump < <file>

ovs-tcpundump -h | --help

ovs-tcpundump -V | --version

The ovs-tcpundump program reads tcpdump -xx output from stdin, looking for hexadecimal packet data, and dumps each Ethernet as a single hexadecimal string on stdout.  This format is suitable for use with the ofproto/trace command supported by ovs-vswitchd(8) via ovs-appctl(8).

At least two -x or -X options must be given, otherwise the output will omit the Ethernet header, which prevents the output from being used with ofproto/trace.
