NAME

       ibod - ISDN MPPP bandwidth on demand daemon


SYNOPSIS

       ibod



DESCRIPTION

       Ibod  is  a ISDN MPPP bandwidth on demand daemon designed to operate in
       conjunction with isdn4linux.  It is normally started at boot time,  but
       can  be  started  and stopped at any time. The program monitors inbound
       and outbound traffic on the ISDN interface. When the required bandwidth
       exceeds  the  capacity for one IDSN B-channel (64kbps) a second (slave)
       channel is connected according to the MPPP protocol. When  the  traffic
       decreases  below  one  channel  capacity,  the slave channel is discon-
       nected.

       A configuration file /etc/ppp/ibod.cf is read  initially.   The  device
       /dev/isdninfo  is monitored for the current state and throughput of the
       ISDN interface.  All operation on the ISDN interface  is  made  through
       the /dev/isdnctrl interface.

       Ibod  is  also  listening on TCP port 6050 for eventual connection from
       control panel



SIGNALS

       Upon receiving SIGHUP, the configuration file is  re-read.   A  SIGPIPE
       closes an eventual socket connection with xibod.



ENVIRONMENT

       Variable  IBOD_HOME  specifies the directory where to look for the con-
       figuration file ibod.cf.



DIAGNOSTICS

       All logging is made to syslog with the identity tag ibod.



SEE ALSO

       ibod.cf(4) and xibod(1)
