NAME

pim6statshow PIM for IPv6 status

SYNOPSIS

pim6stat [-ds] [-f dumpfile] [-p pidfile] [-w waitsec]

DESCRIPTION

pim6stat shows status or statistics of the PIM for IPv6 daemon currently running. When invoked, it sends a signal to let the daemon dump its internal status to a file, waits for dumping, and outputs the content of the file to standard output.
Options supported by pim6stat:
-d
specifies to show the status of a dense mode daemon (if running). By default, pim6stat assumes sparse mode.
-f
specifies the dumpfile to which the PIM daemon dumps its status.
-p
specifies the PID file of the currently running daemon.
-s
specifies to dump statistics instead of status (for sparse mode only).
-w
specifies the wait period in seconds between sending a signal to the daemon and dumping the status or statistics to the dumpfile.
