       fwanalog - iptables log-file analyzer


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


       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


       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

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -r     Rotate log cache (not necessary anymore).

       -t     Only  update  statistics  for  today  (e.g. for hourly use). The
              sep_hosts and sep_packets commands in fwanalog.opts are ignored.

       -y     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.
