flowctlng_netflow(4) control utility



flowctl [-d level] path command


The flowctl utility is intended to control the ng_netflow(4) nodes. It has a single option:
-d level
  Set the netgraph(3) debugging level to level.


Currently, flowctl supports only one command.
show [ ipv4|ipv6 ][ human|verbose]
  This command is the analog of the "show ip cache flow" command of a Cisco router. It dumps the contents of the flow cache in Cisco-like format. Specifying either ipv4 or ipv6 would extract only IPv4 or IPv6 flows respectively. It has optional parameter verbose, which is analog of the "show ip cache verbose flow" command. Additionally, human parameter can be specify to show selected flows in human-readable format.


The utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.


netgraph(3), ng_netflow(4)


The flowctl utility was written by Gleb Smirnoff <Mt glebius@FreeBSD.org>, based on ipacctctl written by Roman V. Palagin <Mt romanp@unshadow.net>.

Today, the Unix equivalent of a power drill would have 20 dials and switches, come with a nonstandard plug, require the user to hand-wind the motor coil, and not accept 3/8" or 7/8" drill bits (though this would be documented in the BUGS section of its instruction manual).
