VTYSH(1)                        Version 0.96.5                        VTYSH(1)




NAME

       vtysh - a integrated shell for Quagga routing software


SYNOPSIS

       vtysh [ -b ]
       vtysh [ -c command ]


DESCRIPTION

       vtysh is a integrated shell for Quagga routing engine.


OPTIONS

       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
              exits.

              It’s useful for gathering info from Quagga routing software from
              shell scripts etc.

       -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
              future.

       -h, --help
              Display a usage message on standard output and exit.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       VTYSH_PAGER
              This should be the name of the pager to use. Default is more.


FILES

       /usr/local/etc/vtysh.conf
              The default location of the vtysh config file.

       /usr/local/etc/Quagga.conf
              The default location of the  integrated  Quagga  routing  engine
              config file if integrated config file is in use (not default).


WARNING

       This  man  page  is  intended  to be a quick reference for command line
       options. The definitive document is the Info file Quagga.

BUGS

       Running the command which outputs large amount of  data  through  pager
       ("show  ip  ospf  database",  "show  ip bgp" etc. in big networks) will
       cause daemon to be unresponsive until vtysh returns back to the prompt.
