NAME

       netamsctl - command-line configuration tool for NeTAMS daemon

SYNOPSIS

       netamsctl [ -s -f <config-file> ] command ...

DESCRIPTION

       NeTAMS  is  a  Network  Traffic  Accounting  and Monitoring Software. Upon startup, netams
       daemon process is accessible via command-line interface provided by its "server"  service.
       To  connect,  a  generic  telnet  application  could  be  used.   However, sometimes it is
       neccessary to issue just a single command: consider an  activity  monitoring  script,  for
       example.  In  this  case  it  is  useful  to  provide  some  level of automation and avoid
       login/password typing. That is wherer netamsctl is useful.

       netamsctl is a simple telnet-like application. It does automatic login onto running NeTAMS
       process,  ad  it  will  issue a number of commands specified as arguments. Daemon's output
       will be then directed to stdout.

OPTIONS

       -f config-file
              config-file specifies an alternate configuration file to use.

       -s     run silently, do not print username/password/port and command

CONFIGURATION FILE FORMAT

       By default,  netamsctl  will  search  for  a  configuration  file  there:  ~/.netamsctl.rc
       /etc/netams/netamsctl.rc  Pathname  could be overriden with command-line option -f .  That
       file should contain at most following lines:

       login= your_netams_login_name

       password= your_netams_password_unencrypted

       host= host_name_or_IP_where_netams_running

COMMANDS

       You can specify a single netams comamnd, or a number of  commands  separated  by  '  &&  '
       sequence  (be  aware  of  spaces).  Multiple  commands  are neccessary to configure netams
       services. For exapmle:

       netamsctl "show version"

       netamsctl "service processor && unit host name AA sys-deny && exit"

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

       Of course, you should have NeTAMS daemon running somewhere, and neccessary access rights.
