bgpd - a BGPv4, BGPv4+, BGPv4- routing engine for use with Quagga routing software
bgpd [ -dhrSv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -p bgp-port-number ] [ -P port-number ] [ -A vty-address ] [ -u user ] [ -g group ]
bgpd is a routing component that works with the Quagga routing engine.
Options available for the bgpd command: -d, --daemon Runs in daemon mode, forking and exiting from tty. -f, --config-file config-file Specifies the config file to use for startup. If not specified this option will likely default to /usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf. -g, --group group Specify the group to run as. Default is quagga. -h, --help A brief message. -i, --pid_file pid-file When bgpd starts its process identifier is written to pid-file. The init system uses the recorded PID to stop or restart bgpd. The likely default is /var/run/bgpd.pid. -p, --bgp_port bgp-port-number Set the port that bgpd will listen to for bgp data. -P, --vty_port port-number Specify the port that the bgpd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2605, as specified in /etc/services. -A, --vty_addr vty-address Specify the address that the bgpd VTY will listen on. Default is all interfaces. -u, --user user Specify the user to run as. Default is quagga. -r, --retain When the program terminates, retain routes added by bgpd. -S, --skip_runas Skip setting the process effective user and group. -v, --version Print the version and exit.
/usr/local/sbin/bgpd The default location of the bgpd binary. /usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf The default location of the bgpd config file. $(PWD)/bgpd.log If the bgpd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this file in the directory where you started bgpd.
This man page is intended to be a quick reference for command line options. The definitive document is the Info file Quagga.
The bgpd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to the system logs. bgpd supports many debugging options, see the Info file, or the source for details.
