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

SYNOPSIS
       ovs-tcpundump file

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


DESCRIPTION
       The  ovs-tcpundump  program  reads tcpdump -xx output on stdin, looking
       for hexadecimal packet data, and dumps each Ethernet as a single  hexa‐
       decimal  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
       -h
       --help Prints a brief help message to the console.

       -V
       --version
              Prints version information to the console.
