NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     atmconfig -- ATM configuration tool

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     atmconfig [-htv] [command [sub-command [...]]] [options] [arg ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The atmconfig tool is used to configure the Netgraph ATM network sub-system.

     The command line of atmconfig generally consists of common options followed
 by a command string, optionally followed by sub-command strings,
     optional command specific options and command specific arguments. Commands
 and sub-commands as well as command specific options may be abbreviated
 as long as there is only one match possible.

   COMMON OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
     The following common options change the overall behaviour of atmconfig:

     -h    Print a very short usage info and exit.

     -t    Several show-type commands output a header and then several lines
	   of information.  If this option is given the header is omitted,
	   simplifying the parsing of the output.

     -v    Be more verbose.

   OBTAINING HELP    [Toc]    [Back]
     The `help' command has a number of useful sub-commands.  To get general
     help use:

	   atmconfig help

     To get a list of available commands use:

	   atmconfig help commands

     To get a list of available sub-commands use:

	   atmconfig help command

     or (if there are deeper levels of sub-commands

	   atmconfig help command sub-command ...

     To get a list of options and arguments for a command use

	   atmconfig help command sub-command ...

     (given, that there are no further sub-command levels).  To get a list of
     common options use

	   atmconfig help options

   DIAG COMMAND    [Toc]    [Back]
     The diag command allows the inspection of the ATM interfaces on the local
     host and the modification of device parameters.  Sub-commands are: list
     (print a list of interfaces), config (print hardware configuration), phy
     (access PHY chip), stats (print statistics) and vcc (print list of VCCs).

     atmconfig diag list
	   This sub-command lists all ATM interfaces in the system.  It takes
	   no options or arguments.

     atmconfig diag config [-atm] [-hardware] [device ...]
	   This command prints the configuration of ATM interfaces.  If no
	   device is given all devices are listed, otherwise only the specified
 devices.  The option -atm instructs the command to print ATM
	   layer configuration parameters like the number of VCI and VPI bits,
	   whereas the -hardware option requests card specific information
	   like the vendor or the serial number.  If none of the options is
	   given the defaults is to assume -atm.

     atmconfig diag phy print [-numeric] device
	   This command prints the PHY registers in a (potential) human comprehensible
 format.	If -numeric is given the format are hex bytes.
	   Otherwise textual representation will be printed.

     atmconfig diag phy show [device ...]
	   This sub-command prints static information about the PHY device
	   used in the ATM card like the type of the PHY and the media.

     atmconfig diag phy set device reg mask val
	   This sub-command allows one to change bits in PHY registers.  This
	   should be used with great care.  The bits of the given PHY chip
	   register for which the corresponding bit in mask is one are set to
	   the values of the corresponding bits in val.  All register bits
	   that have a zero in mask are written back with their original

     atmconfig diag phy stats [-clear] device
	   Print the PHY statistics for the given device.  When the optional
	   -clear is given, the statistics are cleared atomically.

     atmconfig diag vcc [-abr] [-channel] [-traffic] [device]
	   Retrieve the list of currently active channels on either all or the
	   specified interfaces.  For each channel the following information
	   is printed depending on the options (default is -channel ).

	   -abr  Print ABR specific traffic parameters: ICR, TBE, NRM, TRM,

		 Print basic information: VPI, VCI, AAL, traffic type, MTU and

		 Print traffic parameters: PCR, SCR, MBS, MCR.

     atmconfig diag stats device
	   Print driver specific statistics.

   NATM COMMAND    [Toc]    [Back]
     The natm command is used to change natmip(4) routes on the local host.
     The sub-commands for the routing table are: add (to add a new route),
     delete (to delete an existing route) and show (to print the currently
     installed NATM routes).

     atmconfig natm add dest device vpi vci encaps

     atmconfig natm add dest device vpi vci encaps ubr [pcr]

     atmconfig natm add dest device vpi vci encaps cbr pcr

     atmconfig natm add dest device vpi vci encaps vbr pcr scr mbs

     atmconfig natm add dest device vpi vci encaps abr pcr mcr icr tbe nrm trm
	   adtf rif rdf cdf

	   Add a new route to the routing table. The destination address (the
	   address on the other end of the link) is given in dest.  device,
	   vpi and vci are the name of the ATM device and the VPI and VCI values
 for the link.  encaps may be either AAL5 or LLC/SNAP both of
	   which specify AAL5 encapsulation, the first one without additional
	   encapsulation, the second one with LLC/SNAP headers.  The first two
	   forms of the command add an UBR (unspecified bit rate) channel,
	   where the second form allows the optional specification of a peak
	   cell rate (PCR).  The third form adds a CBR (constant bit rate)
	   channel where a PCR must be given.  The fourth form adds a VBR
	   (variable bit rate) channel.  The arguments are the peak cell rate,
	   the sustainable cell rate and the maximum bursts size.  The last
	   form of the command adds an ABR (available bit rate) channel.

     atmconfig natm delete dest

     atmconfig natm delete device vpi vci

	   This commands deletes an NATM route.  The route may be specified
	   either by the destination address or by the device, vpi and vci

     atmconfig natm show
	   List all NATM routes.
