nbd-trdump translates a transaction log produced by nbd-server (specifically by the transactionlog configuration directive) into human readable form.
The command acts as a traditional UNIX filter, i.e. the transaction log must be supplied on standard input, and the human readable output is sent to standard output.
The following may be output:
- A request packet sent from the client to the server.
- A reply packet sent from the server to the client.
- The handle of the packet.
- The command sent.
- The offet from the start of the disk.
- The length of data.
- The error returned.
