flow-rpt2rrd(1)                      General Commands Manual                      flow-rpt2rrd(1)

NAME

       flow-rpt2rrd — Convert flow-report CSV output to RRDtool format.

SYNOPSIS

       flow-rpt2rrd  [-nv]   [-d  debug_level]   [-k  keys]   [-K  keys_file]   [-f  fields]  [-p
       rrd_path]  [-P rrd_postfix]  [-r rrd_storage]

DESCRIPTION

       The flow-rpt2rrd utility processes the CSV output of flow-report into RRDtool format.  The
       aggregates    for    a    key    are    each    stored   as   a   DS   in   RRD   filename
       {rrd_path,"/",key,rrd_postfix,".rrd"}.  By default a DS is created for flows, octets,  and
       packets.    The   key  must  be  specified,  for  example  an  ip-port  report  could  use
       smtp,nntp,ssh,telnet as the keys which would create a separate RRD for each key.

OPTIONS

       -d debug_level
                 Set debug level to debug_level (debugging code)

       -h        Help.

       -k keys|html
                 Comma separated list of key values.  If the report has symbols then the key must
                 be  the  symbol,  ie  smtp  not  25.  The totals_* lines may be used if they are
                 enabled in the report.  There is no default, keys must be specified with  -k  or
                 -K.

       -K keys_file
                 Load keys from keys_file.  See -k.

       -f        Comma  separated list of columns to store.  Each column maps to a DS in the RRD.
                 Defaults to flows,octets,packets

       -n        Enable symbol table lookups.  For example TCP port 25 = smtp.  This will  result
                 in  RRD file names with the symbolic names if symbol lookups were not enabled in
                 the report.

       -p rrd_path
                 Set path to RRD files.  Defaults to ".".

       -P rrd_postfix
                 Set RRD file name postfix.  Defaults to "".

       -r rrd_storage
                 Set RRD storage for 5 minute, 30 minute, 2 hour,  and  1  day  databases.   List
                 items are : seperated.  Defaults to 600:600:600:732.

       -v        Enable verbose output.

EXAMPLES

       The following example shows the combined use of flow-nfilter (inline),
       flow-report, and flow-rpt2rrd to create an RRD depicting traffic
       from clmbo-r4 to AS 10796 and 6478 for 2004-11-08.  rrdtool graph is
       then used to create a .png.

BUGS

       Hard  coded  to  expect 5 minute flow file intervals.  Does not properly parse flow-report
       time-series output.
