raevent man page

raevent — read argus(8) event data.

Synopsis

raevent [raoptions] [-- filter-expression]

Description

Raevent reads argus(8) data from either stdin, an argus-file, or from a remote argus data source, filters the records it encounters based on an optional filter-expression and either prints the contents of the argus(5) records that it encounters to stdout or appends them into an argus(5) datafile.

Options

Raevent, like all ra based clients, supports a number of ra options including filtering of input argus records through a terminating filter expression. See ra(1) for a complete description of ra options.

Example Invocation

% raevent -S localhost
