NAME

icmplog - ICMP packet logger.

 

SYNOPSIS

icmplog [-f, --file filename ] [-n, --no-resolve] [-v, --version]

 

DESCRIPTION

icmplog , a ICMP packet logger, is a part of the jail (just another ip logger) package.

icmplog is a small (daemon) process which logs all ICMP packets to the local host. The syslog level at which a given packet is logged is configurable depending on the ICMP type of the message. Packets from specific hosts can be ignored, and a default log level can be specified.

icmplog can be useful in detecting attempted denials of service, and monitoring network traffic, especially when used in conjunction with tcplog(8).

The configuration is explained in the icmplog.conf(5) manual page.

 

OPTIONS

-f, --file [ filename ]
Use filename as the configuration file instead of the default (/etc/icmplog.conf).
-n, --no-resolve
Do not resolve IP addresses to hostnames.
-v, --version
Display icmplog(8) version.
