       vtysh - a integrated shell for Quagga routing software


       vtysh [ -b ]
       vtysh [ -E ] [ -d daemon ] ] [ -c command ]


       vtysh is a integrated shell for Quagga routing engine.


       Options available for the vtysh command:

       -b, --boot
              Execute  boot  startup configuration. It makes sense only if integrated config file
              is in use (not default in Quagga). See Info file Quagga for more info.

       -c, --command command
              Specify command to be executed under batch mode. It behaves like -c option  in  any
              other shell - command is executed and vtysh exits.

              It's  useful  for  gathering  info  from  Quagga  routing software or reconfiguring
              daemons from inside shell  scripts,  etc.   Note  that  multiple  commands  may  be
              executed  by  using  more  than  one -c option and/or embedding linefeed characters
              inside the command string.

       -d, --daemon daemon_name
              Specify which daemon to connect to.  By default, vtysh attempts to connect  to  all
              Quagga  daemons  running  on  the system.  With this flag, one can specify a single
              daemon to connect to instead.  For example, specifying '-d ospfd' will connect only
              to ospfd.  This can be particularly useful inside scripts with -c where the command
              is targeted for a single daemon.

       -e, --execute command
              Alias for -c. It's here only for compatibility  with  Zebra  routing  software  and
              older Quagga versions. This will be removed in future.

       -E, --echo
              When  the  -c  option is being used, this flag will cause the standard vtysh prompt
              and command to be echoed prior to displaying the  results.   This  is  particularly
              useful to separate the results when executing multiple commands.

       -h, --help
              Display a usage message on standard output and exit.


              This should be the name of the pager to use. Default is more.
