       rasort [[-M sortmode] [sortmode] ...]  [raoptions]


       Rasort reads argus data from an argus-data source, sorts the records based on the criteria
       specified on the command line, and outputs a valid argus-stream.


       Rasort, 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.  rasort(1) specific options are:

       -M sortmode    Supported sortmodes are:
              time           record start time <default>
              startime       record start time <default>
              lasttime       record last time.
              trans          aggregation record count.
              dur            record total duration.
              avgdur         record average duration.
              saddr          source IP addr.
              daddr          destination IP addr.
              proto          transaction protocol.
              sport          source port number.
              dport          destination port number.
              stos           source TOS byte value.
              dtos           destination TOS byte value.
              sttl           src -> dst TTL value.
              dttl           dst -> src TTL value.
              bytes          total transaction bytes.
              sbytes         src -> dst transaction bytes.
              dbytes         dst -> src transaction bytes.
              pkts           total transaction packet count.
              spkts          src -> dst packet count.
              dpkts          dst -> src packet count.
              load           bits per second.
              loss           pkts retransmitted or dropped.
              rate           pkts per second.
              tranref        argus transaction reference number.
              seq            argus sequence number.
              srcid          argus source identifier.


       A sample invocation of rasort(1).  This call reads argus(8) data from inputfile and  sorts
       the  IP  protocol  based  argus(8)  data, first by the destination IP address, then by the
       service (destination) port number and then by  the  source  IP  address,  and  writes  the
       results  to  stdout.   For most services, this arranges argus(8) formatted data by server,
       service, and then by client.

       rasort -r inputfile -M daddr dport saddr - ip


       ra(1), rarc(5), argus(8), tcpdump(1)
