rasort — sort argus(8) data file.

Synopsis

rasort [[-M sortmode] [-m sort fields] ...] [raoptions] [-- filter-expression]

Description

Rasort reads argus data from an argus-data source, sorts the records based on the criteria specified on the command line, and outputs a valid argus-stream.

Options

Rasort, 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. rasort(1) specific options are:

-M replace
Replace the existing file(s) with the sorted output(s).
-m field [field ...]
Supported sort fields are:

record last time.

Invocation

A sample invocation of rasort(1). This call reads argus(8) data from inputfile and sorts the IP protocol based argus(8) data, first by the destination IP address, then by the service (destination) port number and then by the source IP address, and writes the results to stdout. For most services, this arranges argus(8) formatted data by server, service, and then by client.

rasort -r inputfile -m daddr dport saddr - ip
