So I ran tcpdump twice overnight by accident, both outputting to the same file. However, I ran them as jobs and one of them has been paused the whole time. Anyone have a recommendations on how to keep the file? So far I have thought of:
kill -9the paused job
- Pause the running job, copy the file, and then stop both.
Two sounds like the safest option, anyone have a better idea other than not doing this in the first place ;-)
