ipac-convert - convert ipac accounting data
ipac-convert [ -f|--fetchipac FETCHIPAC ] [ -n|--nothing ] [ --start-
step N ] [ --end-step N ] source_dir source_storage dest_dir
ipac-convert is part of the ipac linux ip accounting package.
ipac-convert reads all data stored in an ipac database as created by
fetchipac(8) and copies it into another. It is able to access both
databases through different storage methods and thus can convert
between different database types.
On normal operation, ipac-convert reads the data from the database in
the directory source_dir and copies it to the database in the directory
dest_dir. The source database is accessed through the storage method
source_storage and the destination database is accessed through the
storage method dest_storage.
Tell ipac-convert which fetchipac to use. (ipac-convert needs
fetchipac to access databases.)
Don’t actually do anything, but print the commands that would
have been executed. This shows how ipac’s database is accessed
through fetchipac pretty well.
ipac-convert runs in four steps. Each step consists of one call
to fetchipac. All these calls are normally connected in a
pipeline. Using these options, the pipline is broken up; using
--start-step will remove calls in front of the pipeline,
resulting in ipac-convert waiting for input on stdin; using
--end-step will remove calls at the back of the pipeline,
resulting in ipac-convert to emit data on stdout. The numeric
argument to these options is a step number 1 ... 4.
The steps are: (1) list timestamps of source; (2) strip
timestamp count line (that is the first line); (3) list records
from source and (4) store records in destination.
If the source database is corrupted, results are undefined.
