NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       rsvpd - Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP) daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/rsvpd  [-h]  [-d  level]  [-p]  [-l logfile] [-i

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Prints the rsvpd help and exits.  Enables debug mode.  The
       debug  level is either all (the default) or a bitmask that
       specifies a combination  of  the  following  values:  0x01
       (SYSTEM)  0x02  (TMR)  0x04 (API) 0x08 (MSGS) 0x10 (TCNTL)
       0x20 (SESS) 0x40 (ROUTE) Forces rsvpd to stay attached  to
       the  terminal  and  print  error  and debug information to
       stderr instead of the log file.  Specifies an  alternative
       log    file.     By    default,    the    log    file   is
       /var/rsvp/rsvpd_dbg.log.  Specifies  a  list  of  Internet
       Protocol  (IP) version numbers.  Possible values are 4, 6,
       or 46.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The rsvpd daemon is the RSVP daemon that starts  automatically
 at boot time.  Upon startup, rsvpd performs the following
 actions: Writes its PID to  the  /var/run/rsvpd.pid
       file.   Detects  all  existing  interfaces  on the system.
       Detaches from the terminal unless the -p option is  specified.
   Creates  the  /var/rsvp  directory, if it does not

       The rsvpd daemon logs startup, stop,  and  error  messages
       through  the  syslog  function  to  the  /usr/var/adm/syslog.dated/date/daemon.log
 log file.  If you specify the -d
       option,  rsvpd logs error messages and debugging output to
       the /var/rsvp/rsvpd_dbg.log log file  or  to  a  log  file
       specified with the -l logfile option.

       If  you  want  rsvpd to start automatically at system boot
       time, place an entry for it in the  /etc/inet.local  file.
       For example:

       echo  "Starting  local  Internet  services."  # do not let
       RSVP reserve more than 20 Mbit/s  on  the  FDDI  interface
       /usr/sbin/iftcntl fta0 config max_total_r 20000000 # start
       the RSVP daemon /usr/sbin/rsvpd

       If you make any changes to the network interface  configuration,
 restart the rsvpd daemon.

       If  you  want  to use mrouted and rsvpd on a system, start
       mrouted before rsvpd.

       If mrouted is running on your system,  rsvpd  acts  as  an
       RSVP  multicast router. If IPv4/IPv6 forwarding is enabled
       on the system, rsvpd acts as  an  RSVP  IPv4/IPv6  unicast

   Restricting RSVP Usage    [Toc]    [Back]
       To restrict RSVP usage to a limited number of users on the
       system, set the permissions for the /var/rsvp directory as
       follows: # chmod 750 /var/rsvp # chgrp staff /var/rsvp

       Those users who cannot access the /var/rsvp directory will
       be unable to request RSVP reservations, use any  RSVP  API
       (RAPI) function, or use the rsvpstat command.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You must be superuser to invoke the rsvpd daemon.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The rsvpd log file when debugging is enabled.  This directory
 contains the RSVP API  library  UNIX  domain  socket.
       The  file that contains the process ID of the rsvpd daemon
       that is currently running.
