ALTQD(8)                NetBSD System Manager's Manual                ALTQD(8)

NAME
     altqd -- ALTQ daemon

SYNOPSIS
     altqd [-dv] [-f conf_file]

DESCRIPTION
     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 signals SIGINT or SIGTERM will shutdown altqd, and the signal SIGHUP
     will restart altqd.

     The following options are available:

     -d          Debug mode.  altqd does not detach and goes into the command
                 mode.

     -f conf_file
                 Specify a configuration file to read instead of the default.
                 The default file is /etc/altq.conf.

     -v          Print debugging information.  This option implies -d.

COMMANDS
     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 | ?
           Display a complete list of commands and their syntax.

     quit  Exit.

     altq reload
           Reload the configuration file and reinitialize ALTQ.

     altq interface [enable|disable]
           Enables or disables ALTQ on the interface named interface.  When
           altqd enters the command mode, ALTQ is enabled on all the inter-
           faces listed in the configuration file.
