SHMIF_DUMPBUS(1)		   BSD General Commands Manual			 SHMIF_DUMPBUS(1)

NAME
     shmif_dumpbus -- examine shmif bus contents

SYNOPSIS
     shmif_dumpbus [-h] [-p pcapfile] busfile

DESCRIPTION
     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.

EXAMPLES
     Feed the busfile contents to pcap:

	   $ shmif_dumpbus -p - busfile | tcpdump -r -

SEE ALSO
     pcap(3), shmif(4), tcpdump(8)

CAVEATS
     shmif_dumpbus does not lock the busfile and is best used for post-mortem analysis of the bus
     traffic.

     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.
