.TH ovs\-tcpundump 1 "December 2010" "Open vSwitch" "Open vSwitch Manual"
.
.SH NAME
ovs\-tcpundump \- convert ``tcpdump \-xx'' output to hex strings
.
.SH SYNOPSIS
\fBovs\-tcpundump < \fIfile\fR
.so lib/common-syn.man
.
.SH DESCRIPTION
The \fBovs\-tcpundump\fR program reads \fBtcpdump \-xx\fR 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 \fBofproto/trace\fR command supported by
\fBovs\-vswitchd\fR(8)
via \fBovs\-appctl\fR(8).
.PP
At least two \fB\-x\fR or \fB\-X\fR options must be given, otherwise
the output will omit the Ethernet header, which prevents the output
from being using with \fBofproto/trace\fR.
