fwanalog(1) iptables log-file analyzer


fwanalog [-h | --help] [-c conffile][-r] [-t ] [-y] [-a IP-addr] [-p packet]


This manual page documents briefly the fwanalog command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

fwanalog is a program that parses firewall log-files, and analyzes them with analog. For a complete list of supported log-files formats see /usr/share/doc/fwanalog/README.Debian


The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/fwanalog
-h, --help
Show summary of options.
Rotate log cache (not necessary anymore).
Only update statistics for today (e.g. for hourly use). The sep_hosts and sep_packets commands in fwanalog.opts are ignored.
Like -t, but only for yesterday
-a IP-addr
Create a separate report for this host
-p packet
Create a separate report for this packet.

Format: target/protocol/portnumber

e.g. or firewall/udp/137


/etc/fwnalog/fwanalog.opts, user-changeable options
