NAME
log2pcap - Extract network traces from Samba log files SYNOPSIS
log2pcap [-h] [-q] [logfile] [pcap_file] DESCRIPTION
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite. log2pcap reads in a samba log file and generates a pcap file (readable by most sniffers, such as ethereal or tcpdump) based on the packet dumps in the log file. The log file must have a log level of at least 5 to get the SMB header/parameters right, 10 to get the first 512 data bytes of the packet and 50 to get the whole packet. OPTIONS
-h If this parameter is specified the output file will be a hex dump, in a format that is readable by the text2pcap utility. -q Be quiet. No warning messages about missing or incomplete data will be given. logfile Samba log file. log2pcap will try to read the log from stdin if the log file is not specified. pcap_file Name of the output file to write the pcap (or hexdump) data to. If this argument is not specified, output data will be written to stdout. -?|--help Print a summary of command line options. EXAMPLES
Extract all network traffic from all samba log files: $ log2pcap < /var/log/* > trace.pcap Convert to pcap using text2pcap: $ log2pcap -h samba.log | text2pcap -T 139,139 - trace.pcap VERSION
This man page is correct for version 3 of the Samba suite. BUGS
Only SMB data is extracted from the samba logs, no LDAP, NetBIOS lookup or other data. The generated TCP and IP headers don't contain a valid checksum. SEE ALSO

NAME
smbstatus - report on current Samba connections SYNOPSIS
smbstatus [-P] [-b] [-d<debuglevel>] [-v] [-L] [-B] [-p] [-S] [-s<configurationfile>] [-u<username>] DESCRIPTION
This tool is part of the samba(7) suite. smbstatus is a very simple program to list the current Samba connections. OPTIONS
-P|--profile If samba has been compiled with the profiling option, print only the contents of the profiling shared memory area. -b|--brief gives brief output. -V Prints the program version number. -s <configuration file> The file specified contains the configuration details required by the server. The information in this file includes server-specific information such as what printcap file to use, as well as descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide. See smb.conf for more information. The default configuration file name is determined at compile time. -d|--debuglevel=level level is an integer from 0 to 10. The default value if this parameter is not specified is zero. The higher this value, the more detail will be logged to the log files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only critical errors and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable level for day-to-day running - it generates a small amount of infor- mation about operations carried out. Levels above 1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log data, most of which is extremely cryptic. Note that specifying this parameter here will override the parameter in the smb.conf file. -l|--logfile=logdirectory Base directory name for log/debug files. The extension ".progname" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log file is never removed by the client. -v|--verbose gives verbose output. -L|--locks causes smbstatus to only list locks. -B|--byterange causes smbstatus to include byte range locks. -p|--processes print a list of smbd(8) processes and exit. Useful for scripting. -S|--shares causes smbstatus to only list shares. -h|--help Print a summary of command line options. -u|--user=<username> selects information relevant to username only. VERSION
This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
