ovs-tcpundump -h | --help

ovs-tcpundump -V | --version

The ovs-tcpundump program reads tcpdump -xx output from 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 used with ofproto/trace.


  • -h or --help

    Prints a brief help message to the console.

  • -V or --version

    Prints version information to the console.
