SYNOPSIS

rastrip [-M [replace] [+|-]dsr [-M ...]] [raoptions] [-- filter-expression]

DESCRIPTION

Rastrip reads argus data from an argus-data source, strips the records based on the criteria specified on the command line, and outputs a valid argus-stream. This is useful to reduce the size of argus data files. Rastrip always removes argus management transactions, thus having the same effect as a ’not man’ filter expression.

OPTIONS

Rastrip, like all ra based clients, supports a number of ra options including filtering of input argus records through a terminating filter expression. See ra(1) for a complete description of ra options. rastrip(1) specific options are:

-M [+|-]dsr
  Strip specified dsr (data set record).

Supported dsrs are:

 
flow flow key data (proto, saddr, sport, dir, daddr, dport)
time time stamp fields (stime, ltime).
metric basic ([s|d]bytes, [s|d]pkts, [s|d]rate, [s|d]load)
agr aggregation stats (trans, avgdur, mindur, maxdur, stdev).
net network objects (tcp, esp, rtp, icmp data).
vlan VLAN tag data
mpls MPLS label data
jitter Jitter data ([s|d]jit, [s|d]intpkt)
ipattr IP attributes ([s|d]ipid, [s|d]tos, [s|d]dsb, [s|d]ttl)
suser src user captured data bytes (suser)
duser dst captured user data bytes (duser)
mac MAC addresses (smac, dmac)
icmp ICMP specific data (icmpmap, inode)
encaps Flow encapsulation type indications

In the default mode, without the -M option, rastrip removes the following default set of dsrs: encaps, agr, vlan, mpls, mac, icmp, ipattr, jitter, suser, duser

-M replace
  Replace the existing file with the newly striped file.

INVOCATION

A sample invocation of rastrip(1). This call reads argus(8) data from inputfile and strips the default dsr set but keeps MAC addresses and writes the result to outputfile:

rastrip -M +mac -r inputfile -w outputfile

This call removes only captured user data and timings and writes the result to stdout:

rastrip -M -suser -M -duser -M -time -r inputfile
