SYNOPSIS

etherape [ -d ] [ -f filter ] [ --final-export outfile ] [ --glade-file gladefile ] [ -i interface ] [ -l maxnodes ] [ -m operating mode ] [ --max-delay delay ] [ --min-delay delay ] [ -n ] [ -q ] [ -r inputfile ] [ -s ] [ --signal-export outfile ]

DESCRIPTION

EtherApe is a network traffic browser. It displays network activity graphically. It uses GNOME libraries as its user interface, and libpcap, a packet capture and filtering library.

OPTIONS

These options can be supplied to the command:
-d, --diagram-only
  don’t display any node text identification
-f, --filter <capture filter>
  set capture filter
--final-export <export file name>
  when replaying, export to named file at end of replay
--glade-file <filename>
  uses the named libglade file to load interface instead of the default.
-i, --interface <interface name>
  set interface to listen to
-l, --node-limit <number>
  sets the maximum number of node visible
-m, --mode <link|ip|tcp>
  set mode of operation (default is ip)
--max-delay <delay in ms>
  caps timestamps to the provided delay when replaying a capture file.
--min-delay <delay in ms>
  provides a minimum to inter-packet delay when replaying a capture file.
-n, --numeric
  don’t convert addresses to names, disables name resolution.
-q disables informational messages.
-r, --replay-file <file name>
  sets input file to replay
-s Place nodes using an alternate algorithm. Deprecated.
--signal-export <export file name>
  if specified, enables signal USR1 handling. On receiving USR1, EtherApe will dump its state to the named XML file.

Beware! the file will be overwritten without asking!

-?, --help

Beware! the file will be overwritten without asking!

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

APE_DEBUG=normal|info|debug
