U2SPEWFOO(8) System Manager's Manual U2SPEWFOO(8)

NAME

u2spewfoo - tool for dumping the contents of unified2 files to stdout

SYNOPSIS

u2boat <infile>
 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the u2spewfoo command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
u2spewfoo is a lightweight tool for dumping the contents of Snort's Unified2 log files to stdout. In order to use it Snort first has to be configured to use this format in its configuration file.
 
The tool will take the log file and dump the information on the events in Standard output. This information includes the event and relevant information about it (such as IP addresses and ports, the time the event was detected, etc.) as well as the packet that triggered the event (if Snort has been configured to store a packet capture associated with events).
 

EXAMPLES

To use it run it against a unified2 log file by running: u2spewfoo snort.log
 
The following is a sample output of this tool:
