TCPDUMP2XPLOT(1)	FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual	      TCPDUMP2XPLOT(1)

NAME
     tcpdump2xplot -- converts tcpdump output to xplot input for analysis

SYNOPSIS
     tcpdump2xplot [-?]	[-c] [-help] [-list[filename]] [-plot[filename]] [-q]
		   [-r]	[-s] [-t] [-w]

DESCRIPTION
     tcpdump2xplot takes the output of
	   tcpdump -tt -S ...
     and plots it in terms of sequence-number versus time, with	other info
     displayed (e.g., the TCP window, acks, etc.).

OPTIONS
     -?, -help prints a	help message.

     -c, ``cumulative'', adds all the data coming from a server.

     -list[filename] prints the	list of	generated plot files to	filename.

     -plot[filename] plots the packets from filename. The filename may be
     built out of a hostname and port number, e.g.: abc.def.com:1234. The de-
     fault is
	   fromhost:fromport-tohost:toport.xplot
     where fromhost, fromport, thost, toport are extracted as conversations
     from the tcpdump data.

     -q	means "quiet" --- no visible output.

     -r	means use relative sequence numbers.

     -s	means break up conversations on	TCP syns.

     -t	convert	time to	decimal	number of seconds.

     -w	plots the TCP window.

EXAMPLES
SEE ALSO
     tcpdump(1), xplot(1)

BUGS
     tcpdump2xplot may not deal	properly with output from tcpdump that is not
     TCP.  Either filter to only tcp or	be careful.

HISTORY
     The tcpdump2xplot has been	contributed by xplot users.  Thanks to Garret
     Wollman for contributing the original tcpdump2xplot.pl script and thanks
     to	Eric Prud'hommeaux (@ w3.org) for making
     <http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/config/tcpdump2xplot.pl> available, a much im-
     proved version.  The one included here is a slightly improved version of
     Eric's.
