SC_WARTSDUMP(1) 					    BSD General Commands Manual 					   SC_WARTSDUMP(1)

sc_wartsdump -- verbose dump of information contained in a warts file. SYNOPSIS
sc_wartsdump [file ...] DESCRIPTION
The sc_wartsdump provides a verbose dump of information contained in a sequence of warts files. While the output is structured and suitable for initial analyses of results, the format of the output is not suitable for automated parsing and analysis as the output of sc_wartsdump will change overtime with no regard to backwards compatibility. Analyses of the contents of a warts file should be made using specialised programs which link against the scamper file API. EXAMPLES
The command: sc_wartsdump file1.warts file2.warts will decode and print the contents of file1.warts, followed by the contents of file2.warts. The command: gzcat file1.warts.gz | sc_wartsdump will print the contents of the uncompressed file supplied on stdin. SEE ALSO

SC_TRACEDIFF(1) 					    BSD General Commands Manual 					   SC_TRACEDIFF(1)

sc_tracediff -- display traceroute paths where the path has changed. SYNOPSIS
sc_tracediff [-a] [-m method] [-n] file1.warts file2.warts DESCRIPTION
The sc_tracediff utility displays pairs of traceroutes to a destination where the path has changed. It takes two warts files as input and displays paths where a hop differs by its address. The options are as follows: -a dump all traceroute pairs regardless of whether they have changed. -m method specifies the method used to match pairs of traceroutes together. If dst is specified, traceroutes are matched if the destination IP address of both traces are the same. If userid is specified, traceroutes are matched if the userid field of both traces are the same. If dstuserid is specified, traceroutes are matched if the destination IP address and userid fields are the same. By default, the destination IP address is used. -n names should be reported instead of IP addresses, where possible. sc_tracediff can be useful in network monitoring to identify when a forward IP path has changed. In this scenario, it is recommended that Paris traceroute is used with the same UDP source and destination ports for each execution of scamper so that only paths that have changed are identified, not merely alternate paths visible due to per-flow load-balancing. By default scamper uses a source port based on the process ID, which will change with each execution of scamper. EXAMPLES
The command: scamper -O warts -o file1.warts -c 'trace -P udp-paris -s 31337' -f list.txt collects the forward IP paths towards a set of IP addresses found in list.txt using 31337 as the UDP source port value. If the above command is adjusted to subsequently collect file2.warts, then we can identify paths that have subsequently changed with the command: sc_tracediff file1.warts file2.warts If Paris traceroute with ICMP probes is preferred, then the following invocation of scamper is appropriate: scamper -O warts -o file1.warts -c 'trace -P icmp-paris -d 31337' -f list.txt In this case, scamper uses 31337 as the ICMP checksum value in each probe.
