2.SH NAME
3tracemerge \- Merge one (or more) traces together
4.SH SYNOPSIS
5.B tracemerge
6[ \-i [ interfaces_per_input ] | \-\^\-set-interface [ interfaces_per_input ] ]
7[ \-u | \-\^\-unique-packets ]
8outputuri inputuri...
9.SH DESCRPTION
10tracemerge merges two or more traces together, keeping packets in order.

15.TP
16.PD
17.BI \-\^\-set-interface [interfaces_per_input ]
18set the interface ("direction") for each input to be unique.  The optional
19inputs_per_interface parameter is how many inputs to reserve for each trace,
20and defaults to 1.  Thus if you have two traces with two interfaces (in/out),
21and interfaces_per_input is set to 2, then tracemerge will have the first
22interface of the first input will be 0, the second interface of the first input
23will be 1, the first interface of the second input will be 2, and the second
24interface of the second input will be 3.
25
26Beware that erf only supports 4 interfaces, and pcap only supports 2.
27Limitations apply based on the input trace format (not the output trace format)

35Ignore duplicate packets with identical timestamps.

39.BI \-z [ compression_level ]
40.TP
41.PD
42.BI \-\^\-compression [ compression_level ]
43Sets the amount of compression performed on the output file.  Currently libtrace will always write
44out compressed files, even when -z0 is given.
