|Main index||Section 8||Options|
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.
|Print a very short usage info and exit.|
|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.|
|Be more verbose.|
To get general help use:
To get a list of available commands use:
To get a list of available sub-commands use:
or (if there are deeper levels of sub-commands):
To get a list of options and arguments for a command use: (given that there are no further sub-command levels).
To get a list of common options use:
The diag Command
command allows the inspection of the ATM interfaces on the local host
and the modification of device parameters.
(print a list of interfaces),
(print hardware configuration),
(access PHY chip),
(print statistics) and
(print list of VCCs).
|Ic||This sub-command lists all ATM interfaces in the system. It takes no options or arguments.|
|Ic||This sub-command prints static information about the PHY device used in the ATM card like the type of the PHY and the media.|
|Ic 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 value.|
|Print ABR specific traffic parameters: ICR, TBE, NRM, TRM, ADTF, RIF, RDF, CDF.|
|Print basic information: VPI, VCI, AAL, traffic type, MTU and flags.|
|Print traffic parameters: PCR, SCR, MBS, MCR.|
|Ic||Print driver specific statistics.|

Add a new route to the routing table.
The destination address (the address
on the other end of the link) is given in
are the name of the ATM device and the VPI and VCI values for the link.
may be either
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
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.
This commands deletes an NATM route.
The route may be specified either by the destination address or
device , vpi
