NAME

       ifmetric - An IPv4 route metrics manipulation tool

SYNOPSIS

       ifmetric INTERFACE [METRIC]

DESCRIPTION

       ifmetric  is  a  Linux  tool for setting the metrics of all IPv4 routes
       attached to a given network interface at once.  This  may  be  used  to
       change  the  priority of routing IPv4 traffic over the interface. Lower
       metrics correlate with higher priorities.

       ifmetric uses the Linux NETLINK interface  to  manipulate  the  routes.
       Because  of  that  it  is  compatible  with routes created with the new
       iproute2 utility.

OPTIONS

       You should specify the interface name as first  parameter.  The  second
       parameter  should  be the new metric. If ommited the metric 0 (highest)
       is used.

RETURN VALUES

       0 Success

       1 Failure
