NAME

       polygraph-aka - IP aliases manipulation tool

SYNOPSIS

       aka [--option ...] [interface_name] [alias] ...

DESCRIPTION

       Aka  is  used  to  setup  large  number  of  aliases  during  Polygraph
       experiments with many robots and servers.

       The aliases option specifies what alias or aliases you want to have  on
       the given interface. Aka recognizes IP addresses in PGL address format,
       including dotted IP range. Aka will try to guess the subnet or you  can
       use an explicit subnet specification.

       The  number  of  aliases you can set depends on your OS. Moreover, some
       OSes may support large number of aliases (more than 1000)  but  with  a
       significant performance penalty.

       Note  that you can just put alias specs after all other options and the
       interface name (see aka's usage line).

       Aka will delete all old aliases before setting new ones. If you do  not
       specify  the new aliases, the old ones will still be deleted (handy for
       cleaning up after yourself).
