DESCRIPTION

       Keepalived provides simple and robust facilities for load-balancing and high-availability.
       The load-balancing framework relies on well-known and widely used Linux Virtual Server
       (IPVS) kernel module providing Layer4 load-balancing. Keepalived implements a set of
       checkers to dynamically and adaptively maintain and manage load-balanced server pool
       according their health. Keepalived also implements the VRRPv2 protocol to achieve
       high-availability with director failover.

OPTIONS

        -f, --use-file=FILE
              Use the specified configuration file. The default configuration file is
              "/etc/keepalived/keepalived.conf".

        -P, --vrrp
              Only run the VRRP subsystem. This is useful for configurations that do not use IPVS
              load balancer.

        -C, --check
              Only run the healthcheck subsystem. This is useful for configurations that use the
              IPVS load balancer with a single director with no failover.

        -l, --log-console
              Log messages to the local console. The default behavior is to log messages to
              syslog.

        -D, --log-detail
              Detailed log messages.

        -S, --log-facility=[0-7]
              Set syslog facility to LOG_LOCAL[0-7]. The default syslog facility is LOG_DAEMON.

        -V, --dont-release-vrrp
              Don't remove VRRP VIPs and VROUTEs on daemon stop. The default behavior is to
              remove all VIPs and VROUTEs when keepalived exits

        -I, --dont-release-ipvs
              Don't remove IPVS topology on daemon stop. The default behavior it to remove all
              entries from the IPVS virtual server table on when keepalived exits.

        -R, --dont-respawn
              Don't respawn child processes. The default behavior is to restart the VRRP and
              checker processes if either process exits.

        -n, --dont-fork
              Don't fork the daemon process. This option will cause keepalived to run in the
              foreground.

        -d, --dump-conf
              Dump the configuration data.

        -p, --pid=FILE
              Use specified pidfile for parent keepalived process. The default pidfile for
              keepalived is "/var/run/keepalived.pid".

        -r, --vrrp_pid=FILE
              Use specified pidfile for VRRP child process. The default pidfile for the VRRP
              child process is "/var/run/keepalived_vrrp.pid".

        -c, --checkers_pid=FILE
              Use specified pidfile for checkers child process. The default pidfile for the
              checker child process is "/var/run/keepalived_checkers.pid".

        -x, --snmp
              Enable SNMP subsystem.

        -A, --snmp-agent-socket=FILE
              Use the specified socket for connection to SNMP master agent.

        -v, --version
              Display the version and exit.

        -h, --help
              Display this help message and exit.
