NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ng_tee -- netgraph ``tee'' node type

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <netgraph/ng_tee.h>

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The tee node type has a purpose similar to the tee(1) command.  Tee nodes
     are useful for debugging or ``snooping'' on a connection between two netgraph
 nodes.  Tee nodes have four hooks, right, left, right2left, and
     left2right.  All data received on right is sent unmodified to both hooks
     left and right2left.  Similarly, all data received on left is sent unmodified
 to both right and left2right.

     Packets may also be received on right2left and left2right; if so, they
     are forwarded unchanged out hooks right and left, respectively.

HOOKS    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node type supports the following hooks:

     right	   The connection to the node on the right.

     left	   The connection to the node on the left.

     right2left    Tap for right to left traffic.

     left2right    Tap for left to right traffic.

CONTROL MESSAGES    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node type supports the generic control messages, plus the following.

	  Get statistics, returned as a struct ng_tee_stats.

	  Clear statistics.

SHUTDOWN    [Toc]    [Back]

     This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     tee(1), netgraph(4), ngctl(8)

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The ng_tee node type was implemented in FreeBSD 4.0.
