-g <group>     : Drop privileges to this group.
-h             : Help
-i <interface> : Listen on <interface>.  The lowest number interface
                will be used if an interface isn't specified.
-n <network>   : Reads in a comma seperated list of networks
                to be monitored.
                  ex.  -n ","
-p <file>      : PID file used with daemon mode.
-r <file>      : Read packets from a libpcap formatted file.
-u <user>      : Drop privileges to this user.

-w <file>      : Dump data into file other than assets.csv.

Additional arguments will be processed as a libpcap filter.  For example,
the following command will not only use interface hme1 but will also only
search for assets on port 22:

    pads -i hme1 port 22
