pimd - a PIM routing for use with Quagga Routing Suite.
pimd [ -dhvZ ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -z path ] [ -P port-number ] [ -A vty- address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]
pimd is a protocol-independent multicast component that works with the Quagga Routing Suite.
Options available for the pimd command: -d, --daemon Runs in daemon mode, forking and exiting from tty. -f, --config-file config-file Specifies the config file to use for startup. If not specified this option will likely default to /usr/local/etc/pimd.conf. -g, --group group Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga. -h, --help A brief message. -i, --pid_file pid-file When pimd starts its process identifier is written to pid-file. The init system uses the recorded PID to stop or restart pimd. The likely default is /var/run/pimd.pid. -z, --socket path Specify the socket path for contacting the zebra daemon. The likely default is /var/run/zserv.api. -P, --vty_port port-number Specify the port that the pimd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2611, as specified in /etc/services. -A, --vty_addr vty-address Specify the address that the pimd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces. -u, --user user Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga. -v, --version Print the version and exit. -Z, --debug_zclient Enable logging information for zclient debugging.
/usr/local/sbin/pimd The default location of the pimd binary. /usr/local/etc/pimd.conf The default location of the pimd config file. /var/run/pimd.pid The default location of the pimd pid file. /var/run/zserv.api The default location of the zebra unix socket file. $(PWD)/pimd.log If the pimd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this file in the directory where you started pimd.
This man page is intended to be a quick reference for command line options.
The pimd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to the system logs.
pimd is in early development at the moment and is not ready for production use. pimd eats bugs for breakfast. If you have food for the maintainers try https://github.com/udhos/qpimd
