       ovs-dpctl-top - Top like behavior for ovs-dpctl dump-flows


       ovs-dpctl-top  [-h]  [-v]  [-f FLOWFILES] [-V] [-s] [--host HOST] [-a |
       --accumulate] [--accumulate-decay ACCUMULATEDECAY] [-d DELAY]


       This program summarizes  ovs-dpctl  flow  content  by  aggregating  the
       number of packets, total bytes and occurrence of the following fields:

              - Datapath in_port

              - Ethernet type

              - Source and destination MAC addresses

              - IP protocol

              - Source and destination IPv4 addresses

              - Source and destination IPv6 addresses

              - UDP and TCP destination port

              - Tunnel source and destination addresses

   Output shows four values:
              - FIELDS: the flow fields for example in_port(1).

              - COUNT: the number of lines in the dump-flow output contain the
              flow field.

              - PACKETS: the total  number  of  packets  containing  the  flow

              -  BYTES:  the  total number of bytes containing the flow field.
              If units are not present then values are in bytes.

              - AVERAGE: the average packets size (BYTES/PACKET).

   Top Behavior
       While in top mode, the default behavior, the following single character
       commands are supported:

              a - toggles top in accumulate and live mode.  Accumulate mode is
              described below.

              s - toggles which column is used to sort content  in  decreasing
              order.  A DESC title is placed over the column.

              _ - a space indicating to collect dump-flow content again

              h - halt output.  Any character will restart sampling

              f - cycle through flow fields

              q - q for quit.

   Accumulate Mode
       There  are  two  supported  modes: live and accumulate.  The default is
       live.  The parameter --accumulate  or the 'a'  character  in  top  mode
       enables  the  latter.   In  live  mode,  recent  dump-flow  content  is
       presented.   Where  as  accumulate  mode  keeps  track  of  the   prior
       historical  information  until  the  flow is reset not when the flow is
       purged.  Reset flows are determined when the packet count  for  a  flow
       has   decreased  from  its  previous  sample.   There  is  one  caveat,
       eventually  the  system  will  run  out  of  memory   if,   after   the
       accumulate-decay  period  any  flows  that  have not been refreshed are
       purged.  The goal here is to free memory of flows that are not  active.
       Statistics  are  not  decremented.   Their  purpose  is  to reflect the
       overall history of the flow fields.

   Debugging Errors
       Parsing errors are counted and displayed in  the  status  line  at  the
       beginning of the output.  Use the --verbose option with --script to see
       what output was not parsed, like this:

       $ ovs-dpctl dump-flows | ovs-dpctl-top --script --verbose

       Error messages will identify content that failed to parse.

   Access Remote Hosts
       The --host must follow the format user@hostname.   This  script  simply
       calls  'ssh  user@Hostname'  without  checking  for  login  credentials
       therefore public keys should be installed on the system  identified  by
       hostname, such as:

       $ ssh-copy-id user@hostname

       Consult ssh-copy-id man pages for more details.

   Expected usage
       $ ovs-dpctl-top

       or to run as a script:

       $ ovs-dpctl dump-flows > dump-flows.log

       $ ovs-dpctl-top --script --flow-file dump-flows.log

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit.

       -v, --version
              show program's version number and exit.

       -f FLOWFILES, --flow-file FLOWFILES
              file containing flows from ovs-dpctl dump-flow.

       -V, --verbose
              enable debug level verbosity.

       -s, --script
              Run from a script (no user interface).

       --host HOST
              Specify  a  user@host  for retrieving flows see Accessing Remote
              Hosts for more information.

       -a, --accumulate
              Accumulate dump-flow content.

       --accumulate-decay ACCUMULATEDECAY
              Decay old accumulated flows.  The default is 5 minutes. A  value
              of 0 disables decay.

       -d DELAY, --delay DELAY
              Delay  in  milliseconds  to  collect  dump-flow  content (sample
