How to use Sider Scan Linux version

How to use Sider Scan Linux version #

1. For Linux Desktop Edition #

If your environment has an X-window system or other display out, you can just run this image file.

Using xterm or other terminal applications, type this command:

./SiderScan.AppImage targetDir

This command runs the analysis for “targetDir”, and output a result file, “output.radump” in the current directory.

2. For Linux Server Edition #

Prerequisites #

If your environment has CUI only (this is typical for most os server editions), you need to install a virtual frame buffer to run SiderScan. We recommend “Xvfb”. You may need some other support libraries to install Xvfb.
Here are example commands to setup:

For Ubuntu

sudo apt install xvfb
sudo apt install libatk-adaptor
sudo apt install libgtk2.0-dev
sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev

For Debian

sudo apt install xvfb
sudo apt install libnss3
sudo apt install libgtk-3-dev
sudo apt install libasound2

For CentOS

sudo yum install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
sudo yum install fuse.x86_64 fuse-libs.x86_64 fuse-devel.x86_64
sudo yum install atk-devel at-spi2-atk
sudo yum install gdk-pixbuf2
sudo yum install spice-gtk3-devel

For Redhat

sudo yum install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
sudo yum install fuse.x86_64 fuse-libs.x86_64 fuse-devel.x86_64
sudo yum install atk-devel at-spi2-atk
sudo yum install gdk-pixbuf2
sudo yum install spice-gtk3-devel

Note:
If you cannot use “yum” command (no subscriptions or other reasons), please download Centos RPM and install it:

https://centos.pkgs.org/7/centos-updates-x86_64/xorg-x11-server-Xvfb-1.20.4-16.el7_9.x86_64.rpm.html

Execution #

For Ubuntu and Debian

DISPLAY=:44 xvfb-run -n 44 ./SiderScan.AppImage targetDir

If you have an error message like this:

2037:0710/055410.271688:FATAL:setuid_sandbo ......... HORITY=$AUTHFILE "$@" 2>&1

Please use –no-sandbox option like this:

DISPLAY=:44 xvfb-run -n 44 ./SiderScan.AppImage --no-sandbox targetDir

For CentOS and Redhat

Execute SiderScan with –no-sandbox option:


DISPLAY=:44 xvfb-run -n 44 ./SiderScan.AppImage --no-sandbox targetDir

3. Command-line Help #

When you just type ./SiderScan.AppImage, you can get a command-line help:

Sider Scan cli

Usage
$ SiderScan [options] [path]

Options
--help show help
--version show version
--import,-i import radump
--output,-o export radump (default output.radump)

Examples
$ SiderScan src
$ SiderScan -i out.radump src

About -i option:
Import an already analyzed Radump file and then run the analysis. This enables to do time series analysis. The time series analysis checks the difference between the current analysis result and the previous analysis result.

About -o option:
Specify the output file name and directory. Without this option, the file is saved in the current directory as “output.radump”.

4. How to see the result #

You have two options to see the results.
