ospf6ctlcontrol the OSPF for IPv6 routing daemon

ospf6ctl [-s socket] command [argument ...]

The ospf6ctl program controls the ospf6d(8) daemon.

The following options are available:

Use socket instead of the default /var/run/ospf6d.sock to communicate with ospfd(8).

Commands may be abbreviated to the minimum unambiguous prefix; for example, s s for show summary.

The following commands are available:

Insert the learned routes into the Forwarding Information Base (FIB), a.k.a. the kernel routing table.
Remove the learned routes from the FIB. 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.
Disable verbose debug logging.
Enable verbose debug logging.
Reload the configuration file. This command currently has no effect.
Show the link state database. filter can be any one of the following:

Show only LSAs from the specified area ID.
Show only ASBR LSAs.
Show only AS-External LSAs.
Show only Intra-Area-Prefix LSAs.
Show only Link LSAs.
Show only Network LSAs.
Show only Router LSAs.
Show only self-originated LSAs.
Show only Summary LSAs.
