ovs-tcpundump — convert “tcpdump -xx” output to hex strings


ovs-tcpundump < file

Common options:

[-h | --help] [-V | --version]


The ovs-tcpundump program reads tcpdump -xx output on 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 using with ofproto/trace.



Prints a brief help message to the console.


Prints version information to the console.
