NAME

       poundctl - control the pound(8) daemon

SYNOPSIS

       poundctl -c /path/to/socket [-L/-l] [-S/-s] [-B/-b] [-N/-n] [-H] [-X]

DESCRIPTION

       Poundctl controls various aspects of the operation of the pound(8) program.

OPTIONS

       Options available:

       -c /path/to/socket
              The path to the (Unix-domain) socket Pound was configured to listen on for control.
              Your Pound configuration file must contain the  directive  Control  /path/to/socket
              for poundctl to work.

       -L/-l n
              Enable/disable  a  listener.  A  disabled  listener  will stop accepting connection
              requests.

       -S/-s n m
              Enable/disable a service. A disabled service will not be used by  Pound  to  answer
              requests.

       -B/-b n m r
              Enable/disable  a  back-end.  A  disabled  back-end  will not be passed requests to
              answer. Note however that existing sessions may still cause  requests  to  be  sent
              their way.

       -N n m k r
              Add  a  session  to  service m in listener n. The session key is k and it points to
              back-end r.

       -n n m k
              Remove a session from service m in listener n. The session key is k.

       The parameters n, m and r refer to the number assigned to a particular  listener,  service
       and  back-end  in the listings. A listener number of -1 refers by convention to the global
       context.

       -H     Try to resolve the addresses to symbolic names. Depending  on  your  configuration,
              this may require an active DNS.

       -X     Show the results in XML format.

       When called without flags poundctl will print out a listing of the Pound internal state.
