SYNOPSIS

flow-log2rrd [-p rrd_path]

DESCRIPTION

The flow-log2rrd utility processes the STAT lines generated by flow-capture and flow-fanout and converts them into RRD files. RRD's are stored as rrd_path/capture|fanout.hostname.srcip.dstip.port.rrd. The Datastores are flows,pkts,lost representing flows, packets, and lost flows respectively. Flow-fanout generates an additional DS nobufs indicating the number of times a write() failed with ENOBUFS.

OPTIONS

EXAMPLES

Convert flow-capture STAT lines in /var/log/netflow to RRD's in /flows/rrd/.

cat /var/log/netflow | flow-rpt2rrd -p /flows/rrd
