ALTQD(8) OpenBSD System Manager's Manual ALTQD(8)
altqd - ALTQ daemon
altqd [-dvD] [-f conf_file]
altqd is a daemon program that reads a configuration file and then sets
up the ALTQ state of network interfaces. After configuring the ALTQ
state, altqd will detach and become a daemon.
The signal SIGINT or SIGTERM will shutdown altqd, and the signal SIGHUP
will restart altqd.
The following options are available:
-f Specify a configuration file to read instead of the default.
The default file is /etc/altq.conf.
-d Debug mode. altqd does not detach and goes into the command
-v Print debugging information. This option implies -d.
-D Dummy mode. altqd does not issue altq system calls.
When -d option is provided, altqd goes into the command mode after read-
ing the configuration file and setting up the ALTQ state. Each command
is a single line, starting with the command verb.
The basic commands are as follows:
help | ?
