DESCRIPTION
       rwstats has two modes of	operation: it can compute a Top-N or Bottom-N
       list, or	it can summarize data for a list of protocols.

       In either mode, rwstats reads SiLK Flow records from the	files named on
       the command line	or from	the standard input when	no file	names are
       specified and --xargs is	not present.  To read the standard input in
       addition	to the named files, use	"-" or "stdin" as a file name.	If an
       input file name ends in ".gz", the file will be uncompressed as it is
       read.  When the --xargs switch is provided, rwstats reads the names of
       the files to process from the named text	file or	from the standard
       input if	no file	name argument is provided to the switch.  The input to
       --xargs must contain one	file name per line.

   TOP-N DESCRIPTION
       rwstats reads SiLK Flow records and groups them by a key	composed of
       user-specified attributes of the	flows.	For each group (or bin), a
       collection of aggregate values is computed; these values	are typically
       related to the volume of	the bin, such as the sum of the	bytes fields
       for all records that match the key.  Once all the SiLK Flow records are
       read, the bins are sorted by the	primary	aggregate value, and rwstats
       prints the bins that had	the largest values (giving a top-N) list or
       the smallest values (giving a bottom-N list).  The number of bins
       printed can be specified	as a fixed value (e.g.,	print 10 bins),	as a
       threshold (print	bins whose byte	count is less than 400), or as a
       percentage of the total volume across all bins (print bins who that
       contain at least	10% of all the packets).

       The user	must provide the --fields switch to select the flow
       attribute(s) (or	field(s)) that comprise	the key	for each bin.  The
       available fields	are similar to those supported by rwcut(1); see	the
       description of the --fields switch in the "OPTIONS" section below for
       the details.  The list of fields	can be extended	by loading PySiLK
       files (see silkpython(3)) or plug-ins (silk-plugin(3)).	The fields
       will be printed in the order in which they occur	in the --fields
       switch.	The size of the	key is limited to 256 octets.  A larger	key
       will more quickly use the available the memory leading to slower
       performance.

       The aggregate value(s) to compute for each bin are also chosen by the
       user.  As with the key fields, the user can extend the list of
       aggregate fields	by using PySiLK	or plug-ins.  The preferred way	to
       specify the aggregate fields is to use the --values switch; the
       aggregate fields	will be	printed	in the order they occur	in the
       --values	switch.	 If the	user does not select any aggregate value(s),
       rwstats defaults	to computing the number	of flow	records	for each bin.
       As with the key fields, requesting more aggregate values	slows
       performance.

       The --presorted-input switch may	allow rwstats to process data more
       efficiently by causing rwstats to assume	the input has been previously
       sorted with the rwsort(1) command.  With	this switch, rwstats does not
       need large amounts of memory during the binning stage because it	does
       not bin each flow; instead, it keeps a running summation	for the	bin.
       When the	key changes, the bin's primary aggregate value is compared
       with those of the current Top-N (or Bottom-N) to	see if the new bin is
       a closer	to the top (or bottom).	 For the output	to be meaningful,
       rwsort and rwstats must be invoked with the same	--fields value.	 When
       multiple	input files are	specified and --presorted-input	is given,
       rwstats will merge-sort the flow	records	from the input files.  rwstats
       will usually run	faster if you do not include the --presorted-input
       switch when counting distinct IP	addresses, even	when reading sorted
       input.  Finally,	you may	get unusual results with --presorted-input
       when the	--fields switch	contains multiple time-related key fields
       ("sTime", "duration", "eTime"), or when the time-related	key is not the
       final key listed	in --fields; see the "NOTES" section for details.

       rwstats attempts	to keep	all key	and aggregate value data in the
       computer's memory.  If rwstats runs out of memory, the current key and
       aggregate value data is written to a temporary file.  Once all input
       has been	processed, the data from the temporary files is	merged to
       produce the final output.  By default, these temporary files are	stored
       in the /tmp directory.  Because these files can be large, it is
       strongly	recommended that /tmp not be used as the temporary directory.
       To modify the temporary directory used by rwstats, provide the
       --temp-directory	switch,	set the	SILK_TMPDIR environment	variable, or
       set the TMPDIR environment variable.

       rwstats may also	run out	of memory if the requested Top-N is too	large.

   PROTOCOL STATISTICS DESCRIPTION
       Alternatively, rwstats can provide statistics for each of bytes,
       packets,	and bytes-per-packet giving minima, maxima, quartile, and
       interval	flow-counts across all flows or	across a list of protocols
       specified by the	user.

OPTIONS
       Option names may	be abbreviated if the abbreviation is unique or	is an
       exact match for an option.  A parameter to an option may	be specified
       as --arg=param or --arg param, though the first form is required	for
       options that take optional parameters.

   TOP-N INVOCATION
       To compute a Top-N or Bottom-N list, the	key field(s) must be
       specified.  Normally the	--fields switch	is used	to specify the key
       field(s), but for backward compatibility	the --fields switch is not
       required.

       --fields=KEY
	   KEY contains	the list of flow attributes (a.k.a. fields or columns)
	   that	make up	the key	into which flows are binned.  The columns will
	   be displayed	in the order the fields	are specified.	Each field may
	   be specified	once only.  KEY	is a comma separated list of field-
	   names, field-integers, and ranges of	field-integers;	a range	is
	   specified by	separating the start and end of	the range with a
	   hyphen (-).	Field-names are	case insensitive.  Example:

	    --fields=stime,10,1-5

	   There is no default value for the --fields switch.

	   The complete	list of	built-in fields	that the SiLK tool suite
	   supports follows, though note that not all fields are present in
	   all SiLK file formats; when a field is not present, its value is 0.

	   sIP,1
	       source IP address

	   dIP,2
	       destination IP address

	   sPort,3
	       source port for TCP and UDP, or equivalent

	   dPort,4
	       destination port	for TCP	and UDP, or equivalent.	 See note at
	       "iType".

	   protocol,5
	       IP protocol

	   packets,pkts,6
	       packet count

	   bytes,7
	       byte count

	   flags,8
	       bit-wise	OR of TCP flags	over all packets

	   sTime,9
	       starting	time of	flow (seconds resolution). When	the time-
	       related fields "sTime","duration","eTime" are all in use,
	       rwstats will ignore the final time field	when binning the
	       records.

	   duration,10
	       duration	of flow	(seconds resolution).  See note	at "sTime,9".

	   eTime,11
	       end time	of flow	(seconds resolution).  See note	at "sTime,9".

	   sensor,12
	       name or ID of the sensor	where the flow was collected

	   class,20
	       class assigned to the flow by rwflowpack(8).  Binning by
	       "class" and/or "type" equates to	binning	by the integer value
	       used internally to represent the	class/type pair.  When
	       --fields	contains "class" but not "type", rwstats's output will
	       have multiple rows with the same	value(s) for the key field(s).

	   type,21
	       type assigned to	the flow by rwflowpack(8).  See	note on
	       previous	entry.

	   iType
	       the ICMP	type value for ICMP or ICMPv6 flows and	empty
	       (numerically zero) for non-ICMP flows.  Internally, SiLK	stores
	       the ICMP	type and code in the "dPort" field.  To	avoid getting
	       very odd	results, either	do not use the "dPort" field when your
	       key includes ICMP field(s) or be	certain	to include the
	       "protocol" field	as part	of your	key.  This field was added in
	       SiLK 3.8.1.

	   iCode
	       the ICMP	code value for ICMP or ICMPv6 flows and	empty for non-
	       ICMP flows.  See	note at	"iType".

	   icmpTypeCode,25
	       equivalent to "iType","iCode" when used in --fields.  This
	       field may not be	mixed with "iType" or "iCode", and this	field
	       is deprecated as	of SiLK	3.8.1.	As of SiLK 3.8.1,
	       "icmpTypeCode" may no longer be used as the argument to the
	       "Distinct:" value field;	the "dPort" field will provide an
	       equivalent result as long as the	input is limited to ICMP flow
	       records.

	   Many	SiLK file formats do not store the following fields and	their
	   values will always be 0; they are listed here for completeness:

	   in,13
	       router SNMP input interface or vlanId if	packing	tools were
	       configured to capture it	(see sensor.conf(5))

	   out,14
	       router SNMP output interface or postVlanId

	   nhIP,15
	       router next hop IP

	   SiLK	can store flows	generated by enhanced collection software that
	   provides more information than NetFlow v5.  These flows may support
	   some	or all of these	additional fields; for flows without this
	   additional information, the field's value is	always 0.

	   initialFlags,26
	       TCP flags on first packet in the	flow

	   sessionFlags,27
	       bit-wise	OR of TCP flags	over all packets except	the first in
	       the flow

	   attributes,28
	       flow attributes set by the flow generator:

	       "S" all the packets in this flow	record are exactly the same
		   size

	       "F" flow	generator saw additional packets in this flow
		   following a packet with a FIN flag (excluding ACK packets)

	       "T" flow	generator prematurely created a	record for a long-
		   running connection due to a timeout.	 (When the flow
		   generator yaf(1) is run with	the --silk switch, it will
		   prematurely create a	flow and mark it with "T" if the byte
		   count of the	flow cannot be stored in a 32-bit value.)

	       "C" flow	generator created this flow as a continuation of long-
		   running connection, where the previous flow for this
		   connection met a timeout (or	a byte threshold in the	case
		   of yaf).

	       Consider	a long-running ssh session that	exceeds	the flow
	       generator's active timeout.  (This is the active	timeout	since
	       the flow	generator creates a flow for a connection that still
	       has activity).  The flow	generator will create multiple flow
	       records for this	ssh session, each spanning some	portion	of the
	       total session.  The first flow record will be marked with a "T"
	       indicating that it hit the timeout.  The	second through next-
	       to-last records will be marked with "TC"	indicating that	this
	       flow both timed out and is a continuation of a flow that	timed
	       out.  The final flow will be marked with	a "C", indicating that
	       it was created as a continuation	of an active flow.

	   application,29
	       guess as	to the content of the flow.  Some software that
	       generates flow records from packet data,	such as	yaf, will
	       inspect the contents of the packets that	make up	a flow and use
	       traffic signatures to label the content of the flow.  SiLK
	       calls this label	the application; yaf refers to it as the
	       appLabel.  The application is the port number that is
	       traditionally used for that type	of traffic (see	the
	       /etc/services file on most UNIX systems).  For example, traffic
	       that the	flow generator recognizes as FTP will have a value of
	       21, even	if that	traffic	is being routed	through	the standard
	       HTTP/web	port (80).

	   The following fields	provide	a way to label the IPs or ports	on a
	   record.  These fields require external files	to provide the mapping
	   from	the IP or port to the label:

	   sType,16
	       for the source IP address, the value 0 if the address is	non-
	       routable, 1 if it is internal, or 2 if it is routable and
	       external.  Uses the mapping file	specified by the
	       SILK_ADDRESS_TYPES environment variable,	or the
	       address_types.pmap mapping file,	as described in	addrtype(3).

	   dType,17
	       as sType	for the	destination IP address

	   scc,18
	       for the source IP address, a two-letter country code
	       abbreviation denoting the country where that IP address is
	       located.	 Uses the mapping file specified by the
	       SILK_COUNTRY_CODES environment variable,	or the
	       country_codes.pmap mapping file,	as described in	ccfilter(3).
	       The abbreviations are those used	by the Root-Zone Whois Index
	       (see for	example	<http://www.iana.org/cctld/cctld-whois.htm>)
	       or the following	special	codes: -- N/A (e.g. private and
	       experimental reserved addresses); a1 anonymous proxy; a2
	       satellite provider; o1 other

	   dcc,19
	       as scc for the destination IP

	   src-MAPNAME
	       label determined	by passing the source IP or the
	       protocol/source-port to the user-defined	mapping	defined	in the
	       prefix map associated with MAPNAME.  See	the description	of the
	       --pmap-file switch below	and the	pmapfilter(3) manual page.

	   dst-MAPNAME
	       as src-MAPNAME for the destination IP or
	       protocol/destination-port.

	   sval
	   dval
	       These are deprecated field names	created	by pmapfilter that
	       correspond to src-MAPNAME and dst-MAPNAME, respectively.	 These
	       fields are available when a prefix map is used that is not
	       associated with a MAPNAME.

	   Finally, the	list of	built-in fields	may be augmented by the	run-
	   time	loading	of PySiLK code or plug-ins written in C	(also called
	   shared object files or dynamic libraries), as described by the
	   --python-file and --plugin switches.

       --values=VALUES
	   When	computing a Top-N or Bottom-N, all flows that have the same
	   key field(s)	will be	binned together.  For each bin,	one or more
	   aggregate values are	computed as specified by VALUES, a comma
	   separated list of names.  Names are case insensitive.  The first
	   entry in VALUES is the primary value, and it	is used	as the basis
	   to compute the Top-N	or Bottom-N.  If the --values switch is	not
	   specified (and no legacy switch that	sets values is specified),
	   rwstats counts the number of	flow records for each bin.  The
	   aggregate fields are	printed	in the order they occur	in VALUES.
	   The names of	the built-in value fields follow.  This	list can be
	   augmented through the use of	PySiLK and plug-ins.

	   Records
	       Count the number	of flow	records	that mapped to each bin.

	   Packets
	       Sum the number of packets across	all records that mapped	to
	       each bin.

	   Bytes
	       Sum the number of bytes across all records that mapped to each
	       bin.

	   sIP-Distinct
	       Count the number	of distinct source IP addresses	that were seen
	       for each	bin.

	   dIP-Distinct
	       Count the number	of distinct destination	IP addresses that were
	       seen for	each bin.

	   Distinct:KEY_FIELD
	       Count the number	of distinct values for KEY_FIELD, where
	       KEY_FIELD is any	field that can be used as an argument to
	       --fields	except for "icmpTypeCode".  For	example,
	       "Distinct:sPort"	will count the number of distinct source ports
	       for each	bin.  When this	aggregate value	field is used, the
	       specified KEY_FIELD cannot be present in	the argument to
	       --fields.

       --plugin=PLUGIN
	   Augment the list of key fields and/or aggregate value fields	by
	   using run-time loading of the plug-in (shared object) whose path is
	   PLUGIN.  The	switch may be repeated to load multiple	plug-ins.  The
	   creation of plug-ins	is described in	the silk-plugin(3) manual
	   page.  When PLUGIN does not contain a slash ("/"), rwstats will
	   attempt to find a file named	PLUGIN in the directories listed in
	   the "FILES" section.	 If rwstats finds the file, it uses that path.
	   If PLUGIN contains a	slash or if rwstats does not find the file,
	   rwstats relies on your operating system's dlopen(3) call to find
	   the file.  When the SILK_PLUGIN_DEBUG environment variable is non-
	   empty, rwstats prints status	messages to the	standard error as it
	   attempts to find and	open each of its plug-ins.

       --pmap-file=MAPNAME:PATH
       --pmap-file=PATH
	   Instruct rwstats to load the	mapping	file located at	PATH and
	   create the src-MAPNAME and dst-MAPNAME fields.  When	MAPNAME	is
	   provided explicitly,	it will	be used	to refer to the	fields
	   specific to that prefix map.	 If MAPNAME is not provided, rwstats
	   will	check the prefix map file to see if a map-name was specified
	   when	the file was created.  If no map-name is available, rwstats
	   creates the fields sval and dval.  Multiple --pmap-file switches
	   are supported as long as each uses a	unique value for map-name.
	   The --pmap-file switch(es) must precede the --fields	switch.	 For
	   more	information, see pmapfilter(3).

       --pmap-column-width=NUM
	   When	printing a label associated with a prefix map, this switch
	   gives the maximum number of characters to use when displaying the
	   textual value of the	field.

       --python-file=PATH
	   When	the SiLK Python	plug-in	is used, rwstats reads the Python code
	   from	the file PATH to define	additional fields that can be used as
	   part	of the key or as an aggregate value.  This file	should call
	   register_field() for	each field it wishes to	define.	 For details
	   and examples, see the silkpython(3) and pysilk(3) manual pages.

       To determine the	value of N for a Top-N (or Bottom-N) list, one of the
       following switches must be specified.  The primary value	may limit
       which switch may	be specified.

       --count=COUNT
	   Print the COUNT bins	with the largest (or smallest) primary values.
	   When	COUNT is 0, all	bins are printed.  If COUNT is 0 and rwstats
	   runs	out of memory while attempting to sort all bins, rwstats
	   prints the Top-N or Bottom-N	bins using the amount of memory	it was
	   able	to allocate.  rwstats did not accept a value of	0 for COUNT
	   prior to SiLK 3.12.0,

       --threshold=THESHOLD
	   Print the bins where	the primary value is greater-than (or less-
	   than) the value THESHOLD.  Using this switch	when the primary value
	   comes from a	plug-in	causes rwstats to exit with an error.  If
	   rwstats runs	out of memory while locating all bins that meet	the
	   threshold, rwstats prints the Top-N or Bottom-N bins	using the
	   amount of memory it was able	to allocate.  rwstats did not accept a
	   value of 0 for THESHOLD prior to SiLK 3.12.0,

       --percentage=PERCENT
	   Print the bins where	the primary value is greater-than (or less-
	   than) PERCENT percent of the	sum of the primary values across all
	   bins.  PERCENT may be a floating point value	between	0.0 and	100.0
	   inclusive.  To use this switch, the primary value must be "Bytes",
	   "Packets", or "Records", and	the --presorted-input switch must not
	   be present.	If rwstats runs	out of memory while locating all bins
	   that	meet the percentage, rwstats prints the	Top-N or Bottom-N
	   using the amount of memory it was able to allocate.	The value of
	   PERCENT was required	to be a	positive integer prior to SiLK 3.12.0,

       To determine whether to compute the Top-N or the	Bottom-N, specify one
       of the following	switches.  If neither switch is	given, --top is
       assumed:

       --top
	   Print the top N keys	and their values.  This	is the default.

       --bottom
	   Print the bottom N keys and their values.

   PROTOCOL STATISTICS INVOCATION
       The following switches will compute and print, for each of bytes,
       packets,	and bytes per packet, the minimum value, the maximum value,
       quartiles, and a	count of the number of flows that fall into each of
       one of ten intervals statistics.	 These switches	cannot be combined
       with the	switches that produce Top-N or Bottom-N	lists.

       --overall-stats
	   Print intervals and quartiles across	all flows that were read by
	   rwstats.

       --detail-proto-stats=PROTO[,PROTO...]
	   Print intervals and quartiles for each individual protocol listed
	   as an argument.  The	argument should	be a comma separated list of
	   protocols or	ranges of protocols: "1-6,17".	Specifying this	option
	   implies --overall-stats.

   MISCELLANEOUS SWITCHES
       The following switches are available when rwstats is running in either
       mode, though many only applicable to the	Top-N mode.

       --presorted-input
	   Cause rwstats to assume that	it is reading sorted input; i.e., that
	   rwstats's input file(s) were	generated by rwsort(1) using the exact
	   same	value for the --fields switch.	When no	distinct counts	are
	   being computed, rwstats can process its input without needing to
	   write temporary files.  When	multiple input files are specified,
	   rwstats will	merge-sort the flow records from the input files.
	   When	using --presorted-input	and computing a	Top-N or Bottom-N, the
	   --percentage	limit cannot be	used.  See the "NOTES" section for
	   issues that may occur when using --presorted-input.

       --no-percents
	   For the Top-N invocation, do	not print the percent-of-total and
	   cumulative-percentage columns.  These columns will contain a
	   question mark when the primary key is not one of "Bytes",
	   "Packets", or "Records", and	this switch allows you to suppress
	   them.

       --ipv6-policy=POLICY
	   Determine how IPv4 and IPv6 flows are handled when SiLK has been
	   compiled with IPv6 support.	When the switch	is not provided, the
	   SILK_IPV6_POLICY environment	variable is checked for	a policy.  If
	   it is also unset or contains	an invalid policy, the POLICY is mix.
	   When	SiLK has not been compiled with	IPv6 support, IPv6 flows are
	   always ignored, regardless of the value passed to this switch or in
	   the SILK_IPV6_POLICY	variable.  The supported values	for POLICY
	   are:

	   ignore
	       Ignore any flow record marked as	IPv6, regardless of the	IP
	       addresses it contains.

	   asv4
	       Convert IPv6 flow records that contain addresses	in the
	       ::ffff:0:0/96 prefix to IPv4 and	ignore all other IPv6 flow
	       records.

	   mix Process the input as a mixture of IPv4 and IPv6 flow records.
	       When an IP address is used as part of the key or	value, this
	       policy is equivalent to force.

	   force
	       Convert IPv4 flow records to IPv6, mapping the IPv4 addresses
	       into the	::ffff:0:0/96 prefix.

	   only
	       Process only flow records that are marked as IPv6 and ignore
	       IPv4 flow records in the	input.

       --bin-time
       --bin-time=SECONDS
	   Adjust the key fields 'sTime' and 'eTime' to	appear on
	   SECONDS-second boundaries (the floor	of the time is used).  When no
	   value is provided to	the switch, 60-second time bins	are used.

       --timestamp-format=FORMAT
	   Specify the format and/or timezone to use when printing timestamps.
	   When	this switch is not specified, the SILK_TIMESTAMP_FORMAT
	   environment variable	is checked for a default format	and/or
	   timezone.  If it is empty or	contains invalid values, timestamps
	   are printed in the default format, and the timezone is UTC unless
	   SiLK	was compiled with local	timezone support.  FORMAT is a comma-
	   separated list of a format and/or a timezone.  The format is	one
	   of:

	   default
	       Print the timestamps as "YYYY/MM/DDThh:mm:ss".

	   iso Print the timestamps as "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss".

	   m/d/y
	       Print the timestamps as "MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss".

	   epoch
	       Print the timestamps as the number of seconds since 00:00:00
	       UTC on 1970-01-01.

	   When	a timezone is specified, it is used regardless of the default
	   timezone support compiled into SiLK.	 The timezone is one of:

	   utc Use Coordinated Universal Time to print timestamps.

	   local
	       Use the TZ environment variable or the local timezone.

       --epoch-time
	   Print timestamps as epoch time (number of seconds since midnight
	   GMT on 1970-01-01).	This switch is equivalent to
	   --timestamp-format=epoch, it	is deprecated as of SiLK 3.0.0,	and it
	   will	be removed in the SiLK 4.0 release.

       --ip-format=FORMAT
	   Specify how IP addresses are	printed.  When this switch is not
	   specified, the SILK_IP_FORMAT environment variable is checked for a
	   format.  If it is empty or contains an invalid format, IPs are
	   printed in the canonical format.  The FORMAT	is one of:

	   canonical
	       Print IP	addresses in their canonical form: dotted quad for
	       IPv4 (127.0.0.1)	and hexadectet for IPv6	("2001:db8::1").  Note
	       that IPv6 addresses in ::ffff:0:0/96 and	some IPv6 addresses in
	       ::/96 will be printed as	a mixture of IPv6 and IPv4.

	   zero-padded
	       Print IP	addresses in their canonical form, but add zeros to
	       the output so it	fully fills the	width of column.  The
	       addresses 127.0.0.1 and "2001:db8::1" are printed as
	       127.000.000.001 and "2001:0db8:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001",
	       respectively.  When the --ipv6-policy is	"force", the output
	       for 127.0.0.1 becomes
	       "0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:ffff:7f00:0001".

	   decimal
	       Print IP	addresses as integers in decimal format.  The
	       addresses 127.0.0.1 and "2001:db8::1" are printed as 2130706433
	       and 42540766411282592856903984951653826561, respectively.

	   hexadecimal
	       Print IP	addresses as integers in hexadecimal format.  The
	       addresses 127.0.0.1 and "2001:db8::1" are printed as "7f000001"
	       and "20010db8000000000000000000000001", respectively.

	   force-ipv6
	       Print all IP addresses in the canonical form for	IPv6 without
	       using any IPv4 notation.	 Any IPv4 address is mapped into the
	       ::ffff:0:0/96 netblock.	The addresses 127.0.0.1	and
	       "2001:db8::1" are printed as "::ffff:7f00:1" and	"2001:db8::1",
	       respectively.

       --integer-ips
	   Print IP addresses as integers.  This switch	is equivalent to
	   --ip-format=decimal,	it is deprecated as of SiLK 3.7.0, and it will
	   be removed in the SiLK 4.0 release.

       --zero-pad-ips
	   Print IP addresses as fully-expanded, zero-padded values in their
	   canonical form.  This switch	is equivalent to
	   --ip-format=zero-padded, it is deprecated as	of SiLK	3.7.0, and it
	   will	be removed in the SiLK 4.0 release.

       --integer-sensors
	   Print the integer ID	of the sensor rather than its name.

       --integer-tcp-flags
	   Print the TCP flag fields (flags, initialFlags, sessionFlags) as an
	   integer value.  Typically, the characters "F,S,R,P,A,U,E,C" are
	   used	to represent the TCP flags.

       --no-titles
	   Disable section and column titles.  By default, titles are printed.

       --no-columns
	   Disable fixed-width columnar	output.

       --column-separator=C
	   Use specified character between columns and after the final column.
	   When	this switch is not specified, the default of '|' is used.

       --no-final-delimiter
	   Do not print	the column separator after the final column.  Normally
	   a delimiter is printed.

       --delimited
       --delimited=C
	   Run as if --no-columns --no-final-delimiter --column-sep=C had been
	   specified.  That is,	disable	fixed-width columnar output; if
	   character C is provided, it is used as the delimiter	between
	   columns instead of the default '|'.

       --print-filenames
	   Print to the	standard error the names of input files	as they	are
	   opened.

       --copy-input=PATH
	   Copy	all binary SiLK	Flow records read as input to the specified
	   file	or named pipe.	PATH may be "stdout" or	"-" to write flows to
	   the standard	output as long as the --output-path switch is
	   specified to	redirect rwstats' textual output to a different
	   location.

       --output-path=PATH
	   Write the textual output to PATH, where PATH	is a filename, a named
	   pipe, the keyword "stderr" to write the output to the standard
	   error, or the keyword "stdout" or "-" to write the output to	the
	   standard output (and	bypass the paging program).  If	PATH names an
	   existing file, rwstats exits	with an	error unless the SILK_CLOBBER
	   environment variable	is set,	in which case PATH is overwritten.  If
	   this	switch is not given, the output	is either sent to the pager or
	   written to the standard output.

       --pager=PAGER_PROG
	   When	output is to a terminal, invoke	the program PAGER_PROG to view
	   the output one screen full at a time.  This switch overrides	the
	   SILK_PAGER environment variable, which in turn overrides the	PAGER
	   variable.  If the --output-path switch is given or if the value of
	   the pager is	determined to be the empty string, no paging is
	   performed and all output is written to the terminal.

       --temp-directory=DIR_PATH
	   Specify the name of the directory in	which to store data files
	   temporarily when the	memory is not large enough to store all	the
	   bins	and their aggregate values.  This switch overrides the
	   directory specified in the SILK_TMPDIR environment variable,	which
	   overrides the directory specified in	the TMPDIR variable, which
	   overrides the default, /tmp.

       --site-config-file=FILENAME
	   Read	the SiLK site configuration from the named file	FILENAME.
	   When	this switch is not provided, rwstats searches for the site
	   configuration file in the locations specified in the	"FILES"
	   section.

       --legacy-timestamps
       --legacy-timestamps=NUM
	   When	NUM is not specified or	is 1, this switch is equivalent	to
	   --timestamp-format=m/d/y.  Otherwise, the switch has	no effect.
	   This	switch is deprecated as	of SiLK	3.0.0, and it will be removed
	   in the SiLK 4.0 release.

       --xargs
       --xargs=FILENAME
	   Read	the names of the input files from FILENAME or from the
	   standard input if FILENAME is not provided.	The input is expected
	   to have one filename	per line.  rwstats opens each named file in
	   turn	and reads records from it as if	the filenames had been listed
	   on the command line.

       --help
	   Print the available options and exit.  Specifying switches that add
	   new fields, values, or additional switches before --help will allow
	   the output to include descriptions of those fields or switches.

       --help-fields
	   Print the description and alias(es) of each field and value and
	   exit.  Specifying switches that add new fields before --help-fields
	   will	allow the output to include descriptions of those fields.

       --legacy-help
	   Print help, including legacy	switches.  See the "LEGACY SWITCHES"
	   section below for these switches.

       --version
	   Print the version number and	information about how SiLK was
	   configured, then exit the application.

   LEGACY SWITCHES
       Use of the following switches has been discouraged since	SiLK 2.0.0.
       As of SiLK 3.8.1, the switches are deprecated and they will be removed
       in SiLK 4.0.  For each switch, use the replacement indicated.

       --sip
	   Use:	--fields=sip

       --sip=CIDR
	   Use the most	significant CIDR bits of the source address as the
	   key.	 Using this switch with	IPv6 data will cause an	error.	The
	   user	should use rwnetmask(1)	to mask	the data prior to processing
	   it with rwstats.

       --dip
	   Use:	--fields=dip

       --dip=CIDR
	   Use the most	significant CIDR bits of the destination address as
	   the key.  Using this	switch with IPv6 data will cause an error.
	   The user should use rwnetmask to mask the data prior	to processing
	   it with rwstats.

       --sport
	   Use:	--fields=sport

       --dport
	   Use:	--fields=dport

       --protocol
	   Use:	--fields=protocol

       --icmp
	   Use:	--fields=iType,iCode

       --flows
	   Use:	"--values=records"

       --packets
	   Use:	"--values=packets"

       --bytes
	   Use:	"--values=bytes"

EXAMPLES
       In the following	examples, the dollar sign ("$")	represents the shell
       prompt.	The text after the dollar sign represents the command line.
       Lines have been wrapped for improved readability, and the back slash
       ("\") is	used to	indicate a wrapped line.

       The silkpython(3) manual	page provides examples that use	PySiLK to
       create arbitrary	fields to use as part of the key for rwstats.

ENVIRONMENT
       SILK_IPV6_POLICY
	   This	environment variable is	used as	the value for --ipv6-policy
	   when	that switch is not provided.

       SILK_IP_FORMAT
	   This	environment variable is	used as	the value for --ip-format when
	   that	switch is not provided.	 Since SiLK 3.11.0.

       SILK_TIMESTAMP_FORMAT
	   This	environment variable is	used as	the value for
	   --timestamp-format when that	switch is not provided.	 Since SiLK
	   3.11.0.

       SILK_PAGER
	   When	set to a non-empty string, rwstats automatically invokes this
	   program to display its output a screen at a time.  If set to	an
	   empty string, rwstats does not automatically	page its output.

       PAGER
	   When	set and	SILK_PAGER is not set, rwstats automatically invokes
	   this	program	to display its output a	screen at a time.

       SILK_TMPDIR
	   When	set and	--temp-directory is not	specified, rwstats writes the
	   temporary files it creates to this directory.  SILK_TMPDIR
	   overrides the value of TMPDIR.

       TMPDIR
	   When	set and	SILK_TMPDIR is not set,	rwstats	writes the temporary
	   files it creates to this directory.

       PYTHONPATH
	   This	environment variable is	used by	Python to locate modules.
	   When	--python-file is specified, rwstats must load the Python files
	   that	comprise the PySiLK package, such as silk/__init__.py.	If
	   this	silk/ directory	is located outside Python's normal search path
	   (for	example, in the	SiLK installation tree), it may	be necessary
	   to set or modify the	PYTHONPATH environment variable	to include the
	   parent directory of silk/ so	that Python can	find the PySiLK
	   module.

       SILK_PYTHON_TRACEBACK
	   When	set, Python plug-ins will output traceback information on
	   Python errors to the	standard error.

       SILK_COUNTRY_CODES
	   This	environment variable allows the	user to	specify	the country
	   code	mapping	file that rwstats uses when computing the scc and dcc
	   fields.  The	value may be a complete	path or	a file relative	to the
	   SILK_PATH.  See the "FILES" section for standard locations of this
	   file.

       SILK_ADDRESS_TYPES
	   This	environment variable allows the	user to	specify	the address
	   type	mapping	file that rwstats uses when computing the sType	and
	   dType fields.  The value may	be a complete path or a	file relative
	   to the SILK_PATH.  See the "FILES" section for standard locations
	   of this file.

       SILK_CLOBBER
	   The SiLK tools normally refuse to overwrite existing	files.
	   Setting SILK_CLOBBER	to a non-empty value removes this restriction.

       SILK_CONFIG_FILE
	   This	environment variable is	used as	the value for the
	   --site-config-file when that	switch is not provided.

       SILK_DATA_ROOTDIR
	   This	environment variable specifies the root	directory of data
	   repository.	As described in	the "FILES" section, rwstats may use
	   this	environment variable when searching for	the SiLK site
	   configuration file.

       SILK_PATH
	   This	environment variable gives the root of the install tree.  When
	   searching for configuration files and plug-ins, rwstats may use
	   this	environment variable.  See the "FILES" section for details.

       TZ  When	the argument to	the --timestamp-format switch includes "local"
	   or when a SiLK installation is built	to use the local timezone, the
	   value of the	TZ environment variable	determines the timezone	in
	   which rwstats displays timestamps.  (If both	of those are false,
	   the TZ environment variable is ignored.)  If	the TZ environment
	   variable is not set,	the machine's default timezone is used.
	   Setting TZ to the empty string or 0 causes timestamps to be
	   displayed in	UTC.  For system information on	the TZ variable, see
	   tzset(3) or environ(7).  (To	determine if SiLK was built with
	   support for the local timezone, check the "Timezone support"	value
	   in the output of rwstats --version.)

       SILK_PLUGIN_DEBUG
	   When	set to 1, rwstats prints status	messages to the	standard error
	   as it attempts to find and open each	of its plug-ins.  In addition,
	   when	an attempt to register a field fails, rwstats prints a message
	   specifying the additional function(s) that must be defined to
	   register the	field in rwstats.  Be aware that the output can	be
	   rather verbose.

       SILK_TEMPFILE_DEBUG
	   When	set to 1, rwstats prints debugging messages to the standard
	   error as it creates,	re-opens, and removes temporary	files.

       SILK_UNIQUE_DEBUG
	   When	set to 1, the binning engine used by rwstats prints debugging
	   messages to the standard error.

NOTES
       rwstats functionally replaces the combination the following, where N is
       one more	than the number	of fields passed to rwuniq(1):

	rwuniq --fields=... | sort -r -t '|' -k	N | head -10

       When the	--bin-time switch is given and the three time fields
       (starting-time ("sTime"), ending-time ("eTime"),	and duration
       ("duration")) are present in the	key, the duration field's value	will
       be modified to be the difference	between	the ending and starting	times.

       When the	three time-related key fields ("sTime","duration","eTime") are
       all in use, rwstats will	ignore the final time field when binning the
       records,	but the	field will appear in the output.  Due to truncation of
       the milliseconds	values,	rwstats	will generate different	numbers	of
       bins depending on the order in which those three	values appear in the
       --fields	switch.

       When computing distinct counts over a field, the	field may not be part
       of the key; that	is, you	cannot have "--fields=sip
       --values=sip-distinct".

       Using the --presorted-input switch sometimes introduces more issues
       than it solves, and --presorted-input is	less necessary now that
       rwstats can use temporary files while processing	input.

       When computing distinct IP counts, rwstats will typically run faster if
       you do not use the --presorted-input switch, even if the	data was
       previously sorted.

       When using the --presorted-input	switch,	it is highly recommended that
       you use no more than one	time-related key field ("sTime", "duration",
       "eTime")	in the --fields	switch and that	the time-related key appear
       last in --fields.  The issue is caused by rwsort	considering the
       millisecond values on the times when sorting, while rwstats truncates
       the millisecond value.

       rwstats's strength is its ability to build arbitrary keys and aggregate
       fields.	For maps of a single key to a single value, see	also rwbag(1).
