NAME

ospfctlcontrol the Open Shortest Path First daemon

SYNOPSIS

ospfctl [-s socket] command [argument ...]

DESCRIPTION

The ospfctl program controls the ospfd(8) daemon. Commands may be abbreviated to the minimum unambiguous prefix; for example, s s for show summary.
The following options are available:
 
 
-s socket
Use socket instead of the default /var/run/ospfd.sock to communicate with ospfd(8).
The following commands are available:
 
 
fib couple
Insert the learned routes into the Forwarding Information Base a.k.a. the kernel routing table.
 
 
fib decouple
Remove the learned routes from the Forwarding Information Base a.k.a. the kernel routing table. Decoupling the FIB from an OSPF router may create routing loops and could cause major routing issues in the complete OSPF cloud. Only routers with just one link to the OSPF cloud can safely decouple the FIB.
 
 
fib reload
Refetches and relearns the routes in the Forwarding Information Base a.k.a. the kernel routing table.
 
 
log brief
Disable verbose debug logging.
 
 
log verbose
Enable verbose debug logging.
 
 
reload
Reload the configuration file.
 
 
show database [filter]
Show the link state database. filter can be any one of the following:
area ID
Show only LSAs from the specified area ID.

router

connected
Show only connected routes.
interface [interface]
Show only interfaces or the specified interface.
ospf
