sc_attach man page

sc_attach — simple scamper driver.

Synopsis

sc_attach [-?dDv] [-c command] [-i infile] [-o outfile] [-p [ip:]port] [-P priority]

Description

The sc_attach utility provides the ability to connect to a running scamper(1) instance, have a set of commands defined in a file be executed, and the output be written into a single file, in warts format. The options are as follows:

-?
prints a list of command line options and a synopsis of each.
-d
prints each command sent to scamper(1) on stderr.
-D
causes sc_attach to operate as a daemon.
-v
prints the current revision of sc_attach and exits.
-c command
specifies the scamper(1) command to prepend to each address in the input file.
-i infile
specifies the name of the input file which consists of a sequence of scamper(1) commands or addresses (with the -c option), one per line. If '-' is specified, commands are read from stdin.
-o outfile
specifies the name of the output file to be written. The output file will use the warts format. If '-' is specified, output will be sent to stdout.
-p [ip:]port
specifies the IP address and port where a scamper(1) is accepting control socket connections. If an IP address is not specified, sc_attach connects to the specified port on the local host.
-P priority
specifies the mixing priority scamper(1) should assign to the source.

Examples

Given a set of commands in a file named infile.txt:

tbit -M 1280 -u 'http://www.example.com/' 2620:0:2d0:200::10 trace -P udp-paris -M 192.0.2.1 ping -P icmp-echo 192.0.32.10

and a scamper(1) daemon listening on port 31337, then these commands can be executed using:

sc_attach -i infile.txt -o outfile.warts -p 31337

Given a set of addresses in a file named infile2.txt:

2620:0:2d0:200::10 192.0.2.1 192.0.32.10

these addresses can be pinged with sc_attach operating as a daemon with:

sc_attach -D -c 'ping' -i infile2.txt -o outfile2.warts -p 31337
