       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 inte-
	      grated 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	 rout-
	      ing  software and older Quagga versions. This will be removed in

       -E, --echo
	      When the -c option is being used, this flag will cause the stan-
	      dard  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.
