NAME

       ibod - ISDN MPPP bandwidth on demand daemon

SYNOPSIS

       ibod

DESCRIPTION

       Ibod  is  a  ISDN  MPPP bandwidth on demand daemon designed to operate in conjunction with
       isdn4linux.  It is normally started at boot time, but can be started and  stopped  at  any
       time.  The  program  monitors inbound and outbound traffic on the ISDN interface. When the
       required bandwidth exceeds the capacity for one ISDN B-channel (64kbps) a  second  (slave)
       channel  is connected according to the MPPP protocol. When the traffic decreases below one
       channel capacity, the slave channel is disconnected.

       Ibod also supports more than one additional channel - see ibod.cf(4) for details.

       A configuration file /etc/isdn/ibod.cf is read initially.   The  device  /dev/isdninfo  is
       monitored  for  the  current state and throughput of the ISDN interface.  All operation on
       the ISDN interface is made through the /dev/isdnctrl interface.

       Ibod is also listening on TCP port 6050 for eventual connection from control panel

SIGNALS

       Upon receiving SIGHUP, the configuration file is re-read.  A SIGPIPE  closes  an  eventual
       socket connection with xibod.

ENVIRONMENT

       Variable  IBOD_HOME  specifies  the  directory  where  to  look for the configuration file
       ibod.cf.

DIAGNOSTICS

       All logging is made to syslog with the identity tag ibod.
