arbtt-recover - tries to recover a broken arbtt data log

ARBTT-RECOVER(1) Program references ARBTT-RECOVER(1)

NAME

arbtt-recover - tries to recover a broken arbtt data log

SYNOPSIS

arbtt-recover [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

arbtt-recover tries to read the data samples recorded by arbtt-capture(1), skipping over possible broken entries. A fixed log file is written to ~/.arbtt/capture.log.recovered. If the recovery was successful, you should stop arbtt-capture and move the file to ~/.arbtt/capture.log.
As a side effect, arbtt-recover applies the log compression method implemented in version 0.4.5 to the samples created by an earlier version. If you have a large logfile written by older versions, running arbtt-recover is recommended.
