NAME         top

       ovs-tcpundump - convert ``tcpdump -xx'' output to hex strings

SYNOPSIS         top

       ovs-tcpundump < file

       Common options:
              [-h | --help] [-V | --version]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The ovs-tcpundump program reads tcpdump -xx output on stdin,
       looking for hexadecimal packet data, and dumps each Ethernet as a
       single hexadecimal string on stdout.  This format is suitable for
       use with the ofproto/trace command supported by ovs-vswitchd(8)
       via ovs-appctl(8).

       At least two -x or -X options must be given, otherwise the output
       will omit the Ethernet header, which prevents the output from
       being using with ofproto/trace.

OPTIONS         top

       --help Prints a brief help message to the console.

              Prints version information to the console.
