NAME

       batadv-vis - batman-adv visualization server

SYNOPSIS

       batadv-vis [options]

DESCRIPTION

       batadv-vis can be used to visualize your batman-adv mesh network. It
       read the neighbor information and local client table and distributes
       this information via alfred in the network. By gathering this local
       information, any vis node can get the whole picture of the network.

OPTIONS

       -v, --version
              Print the version

       -h, --help
              Display a brief help message.

       -u, --unix-path path
              path to unix socket used for alfred server communication.

       -i, --interface iface
              Specify the batman-adv interface configured on the system
              (default: bat0)

       -s, --server
              Start up in server mode. This server will read the neighbor and
              client information from batman-adv every 10 seconds and set it
              in alfred via unix socket. The alfred server must run too to get
              this information set.

       -f, --format format
              Specify the output format for client mode (either "json",
              "jsondoc" or "dot")

EXAMPLES

       Start an batadv-vis server which is fetching the information for bat0:
            batadv-vis -i bat0 -s

       To get a graphviz-compatible vis output:
            batadv-vis
            digraph {
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:04:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:04:01"
                    }
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:05:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.004"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:04" [label="TT"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:04:01" [label="TT"]
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:02:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:02:01"
                    }
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:03:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:01:01" [label="1.008"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f0:00:00:08:01" [label="1.000"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "fe:f1:00:00:02:01" [label="TT"]
                    "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" -> "00:00:43:05:00:02" [label="TT"]
                    subgraph "cluster_fe:f0:00:00:08:01" {
                            "fe:f0:00:00:08:01"
                    }
            [...]
            }

       To get a json vis output:
            batadv-vis -f json
            { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:05:01", "label" : "1.000" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.008" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "00:00:43:05:00:04", "label" : "TT" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:04:01", "gateway" : "fe:f1:00:00:04:01", "label" : "TT" }
            { "primary" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:03:01", "label" : "1.000" }
            { "router" : "fe:f0:00:00:02:01", "neighbor" : "fe:f0:00:00:01:01", "label" : "1.016" }
