NAME

SYNOPSIS
       rahosts [ra-options] -M modes [ expression ]

DESCRIPTION
       Rahosts reads argus(8) data from an argus data source, and outputs a
       list of sorted network addresses.  Based on user supplied criteria,
       rahosts can generate lists of IP addresses and/or MAC addresses, if
       available.  With IP addresses, rahosts can track the full network and
       host address, or any network address, based on the mode indicated.

       Like all ra based clients, rahosts supports a large number of options,
       configuration through .rarc files, and input filtering using the
       terminating filter expression.

       See the ra(1) man page for details on ra-options and expression syntax.


RAHOSTS SPECIFIC OPTIONS
       -M mode
            Specify mode of operation.  Supported address modes are ip, ether
            and all address types.  The default is to output IP addresses.
            When IP Addresses are being processed, the network address can be
            specified with the additional modes class, classA, classB and
            classC.



EXAMPLES
       By default, rahosts will output the unique IP addresses seen in an
       argus data stream.  Using the -M mode options you can output all unique
       class B network addresses that access the server narly.wave.com:

              rahosts -r argus.data -M classB host narly.wave.com

       Print the ethernet addresses used to support the HTTP service.

              rahosts -r argus.data -M ether dst port http
