NAME

       ragrep - grep argus(8) user captured data.

SYNOPSIS

       ragrep [options] -e pattern [raoptions] [-- filter-expression]
       ragrep [options] -f file    [raoptions] [- filter-expression]

DESCRIPTION

       Ragrep  reads  argus data from an argus-data source, greps the records based on the regexp
       specified on the command line, and outputs a valid argus-stream.

       Ragrep works only on the fields for user captured data. Argus must  be  started  with  the
       configration  option  ARGUS_CAPTURE_DATA_LEN  set to a value greater than 0, to have these
       data captured. See argus.conf(5) for detail.

       Ragrep is based on GNU grep(1), so the regexp syntax is the same as for grep(1).

OPTIONS

       Ragrep, 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.  ragrep(1) specific options are:

       -c  Suppress normal output; instead print a count of matching lines for each  input  file.
           With the -v, --invert-match option (see below), count non-matching lines.

       -e <regex>
           Match regular expression in flow user data fields.  Prepend the regex with either "s:"
           or "d:" to limit the match to either the  source  or  destination  user  data  fields.
           Examples include:
              "^SSH-"           - Look for ssh connections on any port.
              "s:^GET"          - Look for HTTP GET requests in the source buffer.
              "d:^HTTP.*Unauth" - Find unauthorized http response.

       -f FILE
           Obtain  patterns  from FILE, one per line.  The empty file contains zero patterns, and
           therefore matches nothing.

       -i  Ignore case distinctions in both the PATTERN and the input files.

       -L  Suppress normal output; instead print the name of each input file from which no output
           would normally have been printed.  The scanning will stop on the first match.

       -l  Suppress  normal  output;  instead print the name of each input file from which output
           would normally have been printed.  The scanning will stop on the first match.

       -q  Quiet; do not write anything to standard output.  Exit immediately with zero status if
           any match is found, even if an error was detected.

       -R  Read all files under each directory, recursively; this is equivalent to the -d recurse
           option.

       -v  Reverse the expression matching logic.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Normally, exit status is 0 if selected records are found and 1 otherwise.   But  the  exit
       status  is  2  if  an  error occurred, unless the -q option is used and a selected line is
       found.

INVOCATION

       A sample invocation of ragrep(1).  This call reads argus(8) data from inputfile and  greps
       all http transactions that generated a "404 Not Found" error.

       ragrep -r inputfile -e "HTTP.*404"
