kea-ctrl-agent - Control Agent process in Kea
kea-ctrl-agent [-v] [-V] [-W] [-d] [-cconfig-file] [-tconfig-file]
The kea-ctrl-agent provides a REST service for controlling Kea services. The received HTTP requests are decapsulated and forwarded to the respective Kea services in JSON format. Received JSON responses are encapsulated within HTTP responses and returned to the controlling entity. Some commands may be handled by the Control Agent directly, and not forwarded to any Kea service.
The arguments are as follows: -v Display the version. -V Display the extended version. -W Display the configuration report. -d Verbose mode sets the logging level to debug. This is primarily for development purposes in stand-alone mode. -c Configuration file including the configuration for the Control Agent server. It may also contain configuration entries for other Kea services. -t Check the syntax of the configuration file and report the first error if any. Note that not all parameters are completely checked, in particular, service and client sockets are not opened, and hook libraries are not loaded.
Kea comes with an extensive Kea User's Guide documentation that covers all aspects of running the Kea software - compilation, installation, configuration, configuration examples and many more. Kea also features a Kea Messages Manual, which lists all possible messages Kea can print with a brief description for each of them. Both documents are typically available in various formats (txt, html, pdf) with your Kea distribution. The Kea documentation is available at https://kb.isc.org/docs/kea-administrator-reference-manual . Kea source code is documented in the Kea Developer's Guide. Its on-line version is available at https://jenkins.isc.org/job/Kea_doc/doxygen/. Kea project website is available at: https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea.
