shmif_dumpbus -- examine shmif bus contents
shmif_dumpbus [-h] [-p pcapfile] busfile
The shmif_dumpbus utility examines the bus of an shmif(4) Ethernet interface. The most use-
ful feature is converting the bus to the pcap(3) file format for later examination.
shmif_dumpbus itself is limited to displaying only very basic information about each frame.
shmif_dumpbus accepts the following flags:
-h Print bus header only and skip contents.
-p pcapfile Convert bus contents to the pcap(3) format and write the result to pcapfile.
The file - signifies stdout.
Feed the busfile contents to pcap:
$ shmif_dumpbus -p - busfile | tcpdump -r -
pcap(3), shmif(4), tcpdump(8)
shmif_dumpbus does not lock the busfile and is best used for post-mortem analysis of the bus
The timestamp for each frame contains the sender's timestamp and may not be monotonically
increasing with respect to the frame order in the dump.
