       vtysh - a integrated shell for Quagga routing software


       vtysh [ -b ]
       vtysh [ -E ] [ -d daemon ] ] [ -c command ]


       vtysh is a integrated shell for Quagga routing engine.


       Options available for the vtysh command:

       -b, --boot
              Execute  boot  startup  configuration.  It  makes  sense only if
              integrated config file is in use (not default  in  Quagga).  See
              Info file Quagga for more info.

       -c, --command command
              Specify command to be executed under batch mode. It behaves like
              -c option in any other shell - command  is  executed  and  vtysh

              It's  useful  for gathering info from Quagga routing software or
              reconfiguring daemons from inside shell scripts, etc.  Note that
              multiple  commands  may  be  executed  by using more than one -c
              option and/or embedding linefeed characters inside  the  command

       -d, --daemon daemon_name
              Specify  which daemon to connect to.  By default, vtysh attempts
              to connect to all Quagga daemons running on  the  system.   With
              this  flag,  one  can  specify  a  single  daemon  to connect to
              instead.  For example, specifying '-d ospfd' will  connect  only
              to  ospfd.   This can be particularly useful inside scripts with
              -c where the command is targeted for a single daemon.

       -e, --execute command
              Alias for -c.  It's  here  only  for  compatibility  with  Zebra
              routing software and older Quagga versions. This will be removed
              in future.

       -E, --echo
              When the -c option is being  used,  this  flag  will  cause  the
              standard  vtysh  prompt  and  command  to  be  echoed  prior  to
              displaying the results.  This is particularly useful to separate
              the results when executing multiple commands.

       -h, --help
              Display a usage message on standard output and exit.


              This should be the name of the pager to use. Default is more.


              The default location of the vtysh config file.

              The  default  location  of  the integrated Quagga routing engine
              config file if integrated config file is in use (not default).


       This man page is intended to be a  quick  reference  for  command  line
       options. The definitive document is the Info file Quagga.
